If you don't keep pushing the envelope, the new franchise will suffer.
This is what Ubisoft believes in regards to Watch Dogs . The sequel is going to have to take risks, just as the original did.
Creative boss Jonathan Morin told GamesTM that the follow-up to 2014's anticipated Watch Dogs will have to "push the brand forward" and the team "now has to appeal to fans in a new way." The goal will be to let players create stories for themselves without producing an overbearing narrative.
Watch Dogs ended up selling around 9 million copies so it's a big new IP for Ubisoft. However, it wasn't perfect. Said Morin:
"I don't think Watch Dogs is perfect in any way and there's a lot of room for improvement. But you don't always see this when you ship a game. We deliver what we believe the brand should be at the time. But afterward, when you cool down after five and a half years [of development] and take your vacations and people play the game, certain elements become clear. They let you continue to bring what you envision to the next level with the fans included this time, which is where I think it really gets interesting."
