A journalist has conducted the world’s first-ever in-game interview after being scanned into the universe of Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs: Legion. The incredible feat marks a massive shift in the world of technology. Eat your heart out Marty McFly – this is the future.
The interview saw BBC Click’s Marc Cieslak enter Watch Dogs: Legion via a motion capture rig over at the development studio, Ubisoft Toronto. Cieslak interviewed the game’s creative director, Clint Hocking, against the backdrop of a virtual and futuristic London.

The futuristic world of the interview showcases some of what we can expect from the next game in the franchise. Like the interview, the world of the game takes place in a dystopian London.
Ubisoft describes the upcoming title as follows: “In Watch Dogs: Legion, near future London is facing its downfall… unless you do something about it. Build a resistance and fight the opportunists who have seized power. But sit down and have a cup of tea first. After all, you’re not a bloody monster.”
Sadly, Watch Dogs: Legion is one of a slew of 2020 titles that has been delayed. Originally touted to be launching in March of this year, the devs released a statement saying it’s going to take a while longer.
“We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to deliver this ambitious vision at the best possible level of quality and bring our near-future London to life in the way it deserves,” read a statement at the time.
“We are confident this will ensure Watch Dogs: Legion is the immersive, innovative experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play.”
It’s not known when Watch Dogs: Legion will now be releasing, but hey, perfection takes time.
