Posted in Watch Dogs 2 full copies in the wild thread.

GUYS!! I just broke into UbiHQ and there's a trailer for a new game
Some context

This wasn't a main story mission, It was a (hidden?) side mission that opened up after I stumbled upon a guy on the phone who happened to be a Ubisoft employee talking about Assassins Creed Syndicate, Unity and "Osiris" leaks.

This is why I think this is a real game, why mention other real games only to then show a fake game made just for Watch Dogs?

(The building also had an Assassins creed movie poster on it)
If anyone wants to post a thread feel free.

Not much I can tell from it. Hoping to see more, but it was probably an error to leave that in game

Seems more like an in-universe Easter egg than anything real, especially because the CG is more 2006 era than 2016.

Way to ignore the watermark. Just contacted Ubisoft. Hope you're ready to pay a fine.
I know you're joking, but those warnings are obviously made in the context of Watch Dogs and the hacking world.

FlammableAce is trying to re-up it with sound, btw.

Hacking in Watch Dogs is a thematically cool way to announce/leak a game.
Yeah, in all seriousness, I think this is a cool idea to first reveal a game. And then don't mention it until you have gameplay to show. That's if it's even a game.

There's another thing where
a Ubisoft developer complains about how their AC games are getting leaked, he specifically says Unity, Syndicate, and Osiris. Even more evidence for the Egypt setting.

That looked so much like No Man's Sky its not even funny. Even down to the color palette.

That's a cool way to do it, but admittedly it would be funnier if it was just a collectable you pick up on a random train.

So for context this is part of a mission in Watch_Dogs 2
where you hack and leak a Ubisoft game
, so this may not be actually anything real unless Ubisoft wants to be incredibly meta with this.

This would be a pretty cool way of revealing an unannounced game. Kinda hoping this is real, though I doubt that it is.

I didn't know that was the context of the mission, that makes it sound like nothing real, maybe?

lol holy shit Watch Dogs 2 is my type of game. I loved the first and the second looks so much better with more color and style.

This is a fucking awesome way to tease a new game. Just hope it isn't No Man's Sky with towers.

I reckon Ubisoft would do a great job at that kind of game - their world building is so good. Very interesting find.

You have to hack into the ubisoft building for this? Seems unrealistic considering these usually happen on a plane.

No mans tower /s
No lie I think far cry 4 is space ala destiny would go hard
But I think it's more likely to be an exploration game
