It’s been a while now that we’re hearing about whether or not there lies some sort of connection between two of Ubisoft front-liner games. There has been some speculation regarding whether Ubisoft’s upcoming hacker-centric Watch Dogs is set in the same universe as Assassin’s Creed. Watch Dogs is about a hacker who fights the powers of a corrupt city and the company that controls it. And if you think about it, Assassin’s Creed too has hackers fighting one front of a war against a corrupt and controlling corporation.
In the video below, Assassin’s Creed 4 game director Ashraf Ismail quite clearly hints at a connection between the two games at this year’s E3 conference in an interview with Elder Greek.

Watch Dogs does cross over with the company’s heaviest hitter in a rather subtle and innocuous way: “While hacking computers in the Abstergo offices, you can find a brochure for the Blume Corporation, the company responsible for Watch Dog’s ctOS security system and protocol, along with comments from Abstergo personnel about Blume and ctOS.”
It remains quite unclear whether this is can be taken as a sign of official connection between the Assassin’s Creed Series and Watch Dogs. We’ll just have to wait and find out.
