Ubisoft may be planning a film version of Watch Dogs, according to movie domain registrations
It goes without saying that Ubisoft's new IP, Watch Dogs, was one of the darlings of this year's E3, what with its high-tech premise of a city controlled by computers and a hacker anti-hero-type who's able to mess around with it all.
It's the kind of thing that'd make for a good movie (in the right hands, that is), and Ubisoft seems to think so as well, as it has recently registered the following domains (as discovered by Fusible): WatchDogsmovie.com, WatchDogsthemovie.com, Watch-Dogsmovie.com, and Watch-Dogsthemovie.com.
Before you get too excited, though, remember that it's normal for developers to grab possible movie domains early on in a project's lifespan, therefore preventing anyone else from getting to them before they can. And yet, considering the positive reaction generated at E3 and the premise, it seems possible that Watch Dogs can become more than just a game.
If a Watch Dogs movie does come to be, it probably won't be for a while, since the game is set to be released in 2013. Oh well, that should give you plenty of time to build anticipation, and to read about another Ubisoft game that may be hitting the big screen.
