Having discovered a few references to Watch Dogs in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag the other day, we asked whether or not the two games might be connected on a larger sense in the Ubiverse.
As it turns out, they are just Easter eggs after all.
Speaking in a Q and A over on the AC Initiates forums (it's still ongoing, you can get involved here), lead writer Darby McDevitt nixed the idea that the two franchises might somehow be intertwined when asked if Juno might appear in Watch Dogs:
"No, they are their own games in the Ubiverse. We like to put easter eggs like this in our games, but they are not literally connected."
So that's that then, until Watch Dogs actually releases, of course, and then no doubt new hidden secrets will spark a whole bunch of new conspiracy theories. We can't wait.
