Update: The game does take place in the bay. IGN live stream a surprise full reveal
IGN accidentally hosted a Watch Dogs 2 banner ad on their site before the games full E3 reveal. Being that this is the internet of course someone took a screen shot before the mistake was corrected. If you take a look at the image below it says a lot. The main character is definitely a person of color.
The Golden Gate bridge is in the background which coincides with rumors that this game would take place in San Fransico. But more importantly is the release date. You can see that clear as day. 11.15.16 so mark your calendars folks. I’m curious to see if they’ve improved the slippery driving, boring characters, boring missions and boring “hacking”.
Shout out to the plug.
