The ending of Watch Dogs 2 is now a few seconds longer than before, and may be hinting at the series’ future.
The latest patch notes for the game outline the many changes that have been introduced with title update 1.11. New areas have been opened up in preparation for the upcoming DLC, and there are new emotes and clothing to enjoy. Wearing different clothing may now produce different dance moves when you use the ‘dance’ emote too, which sounds like a good excuse for a ‘trying on lots of different outfits’ montage.
There are quite a few different changes listed, but the most interesting is the slight addition made to the game’s ending. “Without spoiling all of the fun in the patch notes, we’ll just say that if you’ve finished the story you should replay the last mission to watch a little extra something at the end”, the update post promises.
If you want to have your fun spoiled, of course, someone has already gone ahead and uploaded the addition to the end. You can watch it here; the new stuff starts at around 2:17.
Without spoiling it here, the addition seems to hint at a new location. As Kotaku has pointed out, there are coordinates on screen that seem to point towards Brixton, London. The DLC has been confirmed as taking place in San Francisco, so this is curious.
Of course, it might turn out that this isn’t hinting at anything. The game’s initial sales were weak, which has led many to think that the series might not get a third game; however, Ubisoft has also stated that sales have improved quite a bit since then.
Whether or not the game is getting a sequel is unclear, then, but for now you can enjoy a few extra seconds of ending. The patch is 10GB on Xbox One and PS4, and 14GB on PC.
