E3 2019: Ubisoft Announces ‘Watch Dogs: Legion’, ‘Gods & Monsters ‘, & ‘Division’ Netflix Movie Starring Jake Gyllenhaal
Ubisoft is riding into E3 2019 with lots of momentum after unveiling Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. With three unannounced AAA games slated before March 2020, fans were hoping for at least a trio of big announcements during their E3 conference, and they were not wrong.
During the conference gamers were treated to plenty of big announcements for new games, and expansions. Long-awaited rumors have also come true for major titles including the next sequel of Watch Dogs taking placing in London, a new Rocket League rival Roller Champions, and plenty more.
