Watch dogs is about the CTOS a computer system that keeps track of every person in Chicago. AC4 is about the templars search for a 1st civilization machine that can keep track of anyone in the world. Then you can hack some computers in Ac4's modern day setting and find several documents on the CTOS and Blume the company making it. It's actually really cool and for the 1st time ever I'm interested in the modern day of assassin's creed.
Watch Dogs really is the next Assassin's Creed. (SPOILERS)
Now that I've played through AC4, it's crazy the extent to which it's suggested that Watch Dogs is Assassin's Creed V.
There are certainly thematic similarities with both of them revolving around these ultimate surveillance systems, but this isn't just a typical case of Ubisoft groupthink driving their games in the same direction. The CTOS documents verify that Watch Dogs takes place in the same universe, but beyond that, the Templars that run Abstergo Entertainment literally go to a shareholder meeting in Chicago where it is heavily implied that one or more of them is killed by Assassins.
There are Assassins and Templars in Chicago...the place where Watch Dogs takes place...Watch Dogs == Assassin's Creed V.
Yeah I saw that document when if hacked the computer and I got really excited. And then some other people reminded me that Oliver (or whatever his name is) was going to Chicago.
Aiden Pierce is the guy that kidnaps Oliver!
I doubt there'll actually be any connection to Assassins Creed but how awesome would it be if that were true.
Watch Dogs will probably have a small reference to there being templars in Chicago or whatever, but I doubt it'll be an actual Assassin's Creed game.
Also the thought of it being AC5 when it was originally being released the same day AC4 came out is ridiculous
