Watch Dogs Legion Will Not Have Any Cute Canines
Unlike Watch Dogs 2, Watch Dogs Legion will (sadly) feature no dogs for players to pet. According to the game’s creative director at Ubisoft Toronto, dogs couldn’t be included because the developers couldn’t figure out how canines would fit in Legion’s simulated London.
“When you see the bin man workingand then you shoot the bin man, we make his sister not like you, and we make his brother not like you,” Ubisoft’s Clint Hocking explained in an interview with PCGamesN. “When you see the woman walking her dog and you shoot the woman, we really had to ask ourselves ‘What do we do with the dog?’”
“Does someone adopt the dog? Does the dog become a stray? Does it disappear out of the world? That doesn’t seem fair,” Hocking continued. “Do we need to up-res the dog and make the dog a part of the simulation? We already bit off a lot, and we were like ‘I don’t know how we do that. I don’t know how we deal with this problem.’ And so yeah – no dogs.”
