Since the E3 2019 is approaching near and near as year day passes, the excitement among fans about the next Watch Dogs also seems to be spinning out of control. While Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, has given confirmation that the next Watch Dogs would be set in London, there still is a lot more than fans want to know. For that very reason, rumors and speculations seem to have taken a toll on what will the game be like. While we do not have any official confirmed details, this new rumor seems to suggest that NPCs in Watch Dogs Legion will be playable.

On the Amazon UK PS4 listing, we seemingly learned the official news of this upcoming game and that it is expected to roll out in November this year. Which also points towards the fact that we also might see something solid regarding it at the E3 2019 event.

In this listing, there is plenty of description, where it specifically states that you can play as any individual since every individual you meet in the open world has a full set of animations and voice-overs and such.

“Play as anyone. Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay system.”

Apart from the playable NPCs in Watch Dogs Legion, other details note that the game is set in a near future dystopian London.

“It’s a post-Brexit world in which society, politics, and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillance levels in the world making this the perfect playground.”


Jason Schreier himself has vowed that the listing is indeed real, and will determine the different things you encounter throughout the game. With all that said, we would still recommend you to take this lightly, at least until we have seen Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, which itself has a set of rumors.

Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference is scheduled to take place on June 10th at 1 PM PT/9 PM UK time.
