Watch Dogs is going to be one of the first next gen titles getting released on both new and current console generation: the game looks incredibly promising and it’s sure to shake up the third person adventure genre. With these kind of games and the courage to produce and release new Ips, Ubisoft is confirming themselves to be one of the better publisher of later years.
Unfortunately Watch Dogs could be headed towards some development problems: staff switching is always an issue and this could be the case as well since the game’s lead designer, Jamie Keen has left Ubisoft and joined Electronic Arts.
This news is pretty much confirmed: according to Keen’s LinkedIn profile, he’s now a gameplay producer for EA Gothenburg. Some are speculating that he’s going to have a central role in the development of the next Need For Speed game, thought to be in development for next gen consoles. Cryterion is supposedly involved in development as well.
With Keen leaving not too long ago, this is surely going to have some impact on the game: let’s hope it won’t bring the promising Watch Dogs down.
Watch Dogs is slated for release this Autumn on current and next gen consoles and Pc.
