Since Watch Dogs is a video game focused on hacking, many speculated about the man behind a computer on the Ubisoft X post. However, since Ubisoft has not disclosed anything about the plot, many have speculated whether the movie will follow the same storyline. According to Culture Crave on X, the Watch Dogs movie setting will be in the same universe as the game.

Watch Dogs game fans first expected the video game’s adaptation to start production in 2014. Over 10 years down the line, people showed mixed reactions about Watch Dogs’ production on X, with some commenting, “Are they still trying to make this?” Others had a more positive outlook, hoping the movie would be great.
