Exciting news out of Gamecom 2013: Watch Dogs is heading the movie route. Ubisoft Motion Pictures is partnering with Sony Pictures Entertainment to bring Watch Dogs to the big screen. After seeing the trailers for this game I'm fully behind the choice; hopefully they land the right creative talent to drive this project. I'd love to see an intense action thriller with a huge emphasis on the psychological aspects of what Aiden is doing in the game proper. Of course I'd also still love to see an Assassin's Creed movie, but I guess I'm just dreaming for the moment.
Along with the news Ubisoft released the DedSec trailer, bringing an Anonymous-influenced faction in the world of Watch Dogs. It appears they aren't on our protagonist side and are instead using his antics to forward their own agenda. The message is clear: You are not safe. Check out the trailer below.
Ubisoft is picking up the pace on movies. I don't doubt an Assassin's Creed movie is still in pre-production -- at least since a lot of big named directors and actors are currently on other projects like all the upcoming reboots (Jurassic Park, RoboCop, etc.).
I can't wait for this and Splinter Cell. :o
