One of the biggest issues surrounding the original Watch Dogs wasn’t necessarily that the game didn’t live up to its own hype, but that the final product’s visuals didn’t match what was originally shown when it was revealed. While many have questioned why the downgrade happened, we’re now getting official word from the game’s producer.
Dominic Guay recently spoke with the Evening Standard where he said the following:
“One thing to remember is that the first showing of Watch Dogs came in summer 2012, before anyone knew what the Next Gen of consoles and hardware would be. We did our best at the time to predict what that would be and always were forward that this first showing was running on a very powerful PC.”
He goes on to say that that won’t be happening again for the second game, saying they “are in a much more predictable context. We have been developing the game on our target platforms from the beginning.”
Watch Dogs 2 is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 15th.
