If you want something done sometimes you just have to do it yourself. That must be the rationale behind Ubisoft, the French video game publisher who last month registered domain names for an impending feature film release for its forthcoming video game release Watch Dogs.
Ubisoft has registered the following domain names:
WatchDogsthemovie.com, WatchDogsmovie.com, Watch-Dogsmovie.com and Watch-Dogsthemovie.com.
After its unveiling at this year’s E3, the game, about a hacker named Aiden Pearce going after the individuals who wronged him, the crowd was in a tither. Maybe not as amped compared to the likes of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us or Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls, but excited nonetheless.
No official announcements about a film have been made, but the company is also working on video game to big screen translations of such lucrative franchises as Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.
The likelihood of a Watch Dogs movie to occur any time soon is slim. The reality is that the game will see its release in Q3 or Q4 of 2013. Depending on sales and popularity, we probably won’t see a film adaptation until 2016.
