There’s a little mission in Watch Dogs 2 that has players hacking into the account of an Ubisoft employee in-game by the name of Elliot Chen. Go far enough in the quest and you’ll be rewarded with an E3 trailer of what looks to be a game currently in development at Ubisoft.
The trailer looks like a space western, replete with planetary backdrops, realistic looking space stations, and some western-themed music reminiscent of Cowboy Bebop. You can watch the mission below.
It’s not the first time Ubisoft’s implemented something so meta into one of their games. Titles from the Far Cry series often featured references to Assassin’s Creed, and the more recent AC titles featured Assassin’s Creed virtual reality games as part of their in-game lore with Abstergo as their developers, which bore a strong resemblance to Ubisoft.
At this point, it’s hard to tell as to whether the trailer of the game is actually of a real game, or just something the studio whipped up for Watch Dogs 2. I guess we’ll have to wait until next year for them to announce it.
