Watch Dogs 2 will not have any AR mini games. However, as another option, they are offering more city exploration according to game director Danny Belanger. This city exploration will give the player the opportunity to uncover secrets that will lead to unlocking sidequest options.
Danny Belanger’s desire is to instead expand the multiplayer options of the game, and will also, he hopes, integrate a seamless co-op feature. When seamless co-op is integrated, this will result in the implementation of seamless hacking.
Players can work together with their other DedSec allies in co-op mode, and thus specific challenging operations that require two people were created for this reason.
The AR games that Watch Dogs previously had available were NVZN, which was a virtual shooter game where they player targets aliens, and also Coin Run. Though the removal of the AR games may hone the focus of Watch Dogs 2, it is unknown whether something similar will replace them.
The release date for Watch Dogs 2 is slated for November 15th, 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
