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.
