Watch Dogs couldn’t be your favorite and the same goes with me as well, Of course, I love Aiden, however, Watch Dogs 2 wouldn’t be the same and will work a lot better,  the trailer looked anticipating and dominating, Clearly it awestruck me and several others,  but few things never change and hacking some weird showstoppers in Watch Dogs will never ever change.

So, Will Watch Dogs 2 comes as the desired product and how intensively are you waiting for this? Let us know in the comment box below. You can check for more news on this on Ubisoft Website.
