An image of what is reportedly the protagonist of Watch Dogs 2 has appeared online. The picture, which you can see below, was found on an Instagram profile belonging to King, a performance artist.
The account is now private, but an image of the post was captured by NerdLeaks. It features what looks to be a character of Asian descent sporting a baseball cap and a bandana covering his mouth. In addition he is is wearing a messenger bag along with a phone in one hand and a gun in another.
It is believed to be an image from Watch Dogs 2 because Aiden pearce from Watch Dogs utilizes a mobile phone as his main accessory. The caption reads: “had a blast doing motion capture work as the lead character in a new video game series.”
Ubisoft previously stated a sequel to Watch Dogs will launch before the end of its next financial year, which is April 2017.
