Watch Dogs Interview: Writer Kevin Shortt On His Techno Thriller

Watch Dogs taps into the nature of our connected lives by giving one man (with a thirst for vengeance, naturally) the tools to delve into the personal lives of a city full of people and bend that city's infrastructure to his will.

It was roughly a year after the game's initial reveal at E3 2012 that Edward Snowden exposed the extent of US government surveillance on its own people, foreign leaders and probably your nan too. Suddenly the game was more relevant than ever.

Watch Dogs' core concept strikes a chord with the modern world, but will its story do the same? I spoke to the game's lead writer Kevin Shortt about the highly-anticipated game. (Industry, Kevin Shortt, Next-Gen, Watch Dogs)
