Ubisoft has confirmed that the third installment of the Watch Dogs series, dubbed Watch Dogs Legion, will be revealed at E3 2019.
The official Watch Dogs Twitter account posted a cryptic teaser that gives you the plot of Legion in just four simple words: “God Save the NPCs.”

Ubisoft’s confirmation of Watch Dogs Legion comes one day after a leak on Amazon UK said that the next Watch Dogs game would be set in post-Brexit London, where society, politics and technology — especially surveillance technology since London has the highest level of surveillance tech in the world — has changed so rapidly you might as well be in an episode of Black Mirror.
As the tweet and leaked listing suggest, Watch Dogs Legion will allow you to play as any NPC you encounter and see things from different vantage points depending on which NPC you’re playing as.
Ubisoft will be holding their E3 2019 press conference on Monday, June 10 at 3:30 EST/12:30 PT/8:30 BST. Hopefully, they’ll reveal more information about Watch Dogs Legion by then.
