Watch Dogs began as salvage from a cancelled Driver project

Speaking with IGN, Ubisoft North America president Laurent Detoc revealed the secret origins of the new IP.

“Watch Dogs wasn’t started as Watch Dogs. They were working on a driving engine, working on something. We had the Driver license. This was years ago. Then we were thinking, ‘no, this is not the way we want to go with a driving game,’ so we cancelled that and restarted,” he said. (PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Nice, always loved the Driver franchise. So off the back i know the driving mechanics will be great.

Driver the first game was awesome. I loved making crazy getaways and then watching the replays of them.

I hope there is more depth to the hacking/combat in the game.

The one button press system ubisoft has adopted for all games is far to easy.

I'm not that interested in many 3rd party games on the next gen consoles at the moment but this one I am and looking forward to getting it. I hope we see a new driver again this gen though loved the driver games.

The last driver was great from a gameplay stand point. An the premise of the story was pretty interesting. Which reminds me, I need to finish that game.
