This Ubisoft AI Believes Watch Dogs 3 is in Development

By Laura Kate Dale on at

Only available in Canada, Ubisoft has a gaming AI called Sam. It's essentially Ubi's equivalent of Alexa or Siri, answering player questions and offering help with issues. It was released in beta in January, and not much has really come of Sam's release since.

That is, until now. If you ask Sam about Watch Dogs 3, the AI assistant has the following response to offer:

Watch Dogs 3 is not finished yet, but from the last early build I tried it’s very solid. The Dev team works wonders! Can’t wait for you to try it!”

Ubisoft fan channel UbiCentral was the first place we saw find this message, but it does seem to be repeatable. The message may just be a placeholder for any unreleased game from a known Ubisoft brand, but it could also be a custom message added to the service a little earlier than expected. If Ubisoft plans to alternate Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs releases each year, we can likely expect a reveal at E3 this summer, but for now only time will tell.

Thanks AI, for not knowing you're not meant to talk about unreleased games you've been apparently playing.
