    Watch Dogs and Assassins creed possibly share the same universe

    Exclusive: Ubi Alludes to Shared IP Universe | Elder-Geek.com


    During a show floor interview with our very own Randy Yasenchak this past week at E3, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag game director Ashraf Ismail chose his words very carefully when asked about AC4 and Watch_Dogs sharing the same universe.

    “I don’t want to ruin the surprise for people,” Ismail admitted, “I don’t want to give anything away. I will say, for the people who love both games, for the people who will play both games; there are some Easter Eggs that may be a bit hard to find, but when you find them, it will blow your mind.”

    While by no means a direct confirmation, Ismail’s demeanor and less than subtle method of circumvention of the topic leads to the reasonable possibility of an Ubisoft timeline covering multiple different IP.

    There are AC easter eggs in a ton of Ubisoft games. I guess that means they're all in the same universe.

    Also, more Driver please, kthanks Ubisoft.

    Wasn't there a link with AC and mgs:pw where you leap off a barn into some hay?

    I think the link was in Witcher 2, though I never played it. There's some joke or something about leaping into bails of hay Speaking of which, Witcher 3 looks epic. Ahem, but yes I can totally imagine that AC and Watch Dogs could be in the same World, not directly but say 'walk past a billboard for Abstergo Entertainment' or something. XD

    There was the body of a man dressed in a white hood, spread-eagled next to a bale of hay.

    And these easter eggs sound quite cool! I like little things like these in games.

    You would like to find little Easter eggs throughout your games.

    It all turns out it's all a dream sequence Rayman is having while in a coma after losing his limbs many years ago, he made up Ass Creed, Watch Dogs, Tom Clancy, Just Dance, Prince Of Persia et al to fulfill his destiny as a master platformer so he could destroy the evil Mario empire.

    You read it here first.

    how does it feel knowing my theory was right.


    they did the same thing with the Tom clancy universe (With some exceptions like The Division and Endwar (Which also has a combined Tom clancy universe))


    Ubisoft likes to make huge universes so all their series are connected (with the exception of the cartoony ips they have like rayman.)


    For those who don't know, AC4 Plot is basically Abstergo trying to find something called the Observatory, A place where anyone can watch everyone's daily life with a vial of their blood. Meanwhile while they are looking for this place they also teamed up with Blume security (watch dogs company) To make ctOS, Which is basically the same thing on a technological scale.

    So what is ctOS?
    - CONFIDENTIAL: “Privacy is security.”
    - INTEGRAL: “How did we ever do business without it?”
    - ACCESSIBLE: “The touch of a button!”
    - AVAILABLE: “We’re everywhere… all the time.”
    - STABLE: “It just WORKS.”
    Put simply, ctOS is the most stable and user-friendly software security-controller ever devised. Can ABSTERGO afford to pass up perfection?
    Note that this reference is impossible to avoid, because they make it one of the main parts of the game that involve hacking computers.


    while this is going on, Abstergo is also having a shareholders meeting in Chicago, the Setting for watch dogs.

    I'm Guessing if the game wasn't delayed, we would of seen the other half of the story already. (or maybe ubisoft is playing it smart and allowing people to experience the first half of the plot)


    TL;DR

    Just a little nod to the series is all. There was a spot in one of the missions where you leap off the top of a building [On the way to Peace Walker's underground base], into a bale of hay, and it unlocks the "Assassin's Box", which was a cardboard box made to look like a bale of hay.

    There's also a reference in MGS4 - kill or stun 50 enemies with the Stun Knife, and you'll unlock Altair's robes as a disguise [The same robes used in a joke trailer they released before MGS4 came out.].
