This game felt like an origin story of a super villain which would have been great but it was completely unintentional. Since it sold well I really wonder what a Watch Dogs 2 looks like, do they lean in on the Aiden bullshit, do they pull a (better executed) Prototype 2 and have him be the villain which I would prefer or do they just scrap everything and start anew and go the Far Cry route.
I'v found that turning down everything to high(running on a 770 2gb but getting a r9 290 in the next couple days so will update) keeps the stuttering down and turning the textures down to medium would cut it down to none. It's explained here whats going on http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/watch_dogs_vga_graphics_performance_benchmark_review,7.html
If only Beenox was actually given time to make one of these things I think it would turn out better than just an "arkham clone". I didn't like shattered dementions to much nor web of shadows but I did like ASM 1. This one is at the least better than the Spider-Man 3 game.
