3 Reasons Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs are the Same Universe

An Assassin's Creed developer interview, and Easter Eggs from both Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs, point to the games taking place in the same universe. (Assassin's Creed, PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Wow, that's really awesome! I hope they actually do something with that. Next Ubisoft game = Assassin's Dogs

No please...keep them separate.

We don't need more AC, let WatchDogs evolve into it's own franchises with it's own universe.

Agreed. Assassin's Creed is getting to be a tired franchise.

It would just make Ubisoft look desperate to try and give AC more attention.

They've created a great looking game with a nice concept around it....don't ruin it by relating it to AC.

Easter Eggs fine but not that they actually share the same universe.

I think it is fresh and exciting... perhaps you didn't find all 14,003 collectibles yet?

Once you collect all of the feathers and peg legs, things REALLY start to get interesting.

You are acting like the EXACT same formula has been used in each game, on the same engine, since inception.

Oh. Wait.

Yeah, you are right.

I think the whole idea from Assassins Creed is Abstergo is Ubisoft. They send you into thepast/world and Abstergo does the same. I think they are loosely just doing a similar with Watch Dogs (you are fighting the system by hacking) but I expect the games to be linked only through easter eggs and nothing more

Too bad Watch_Dogs got delayed, because Assassin's Creed games are getting really repetitive

Only if you try complete them for 100%

... or play them.

The final easter egg would seem to be very open to interpretation.

The store clerk could have changed his name to reflect a video game character he likes from a game he sells, thus not the same universe.

On the other hand, he could have changed it to Edward Kenway, Historic badass pirate assassin, but that would make him a hipster douche... and living in the same universe.

Then again the name could have been chosen completely at random, in which case it's just an easter egg.
