We didn't know what the hell those new consoles would be, so Watch Dogs really has worked on [seventh]-gen systems since the start. But we always pushed the ideas, the design, the core of Watch Dogs in such a way that we felt it would fit well with what we thought would be the future of games.”

“Yves was the one who wanted us to go at that E3,” Morin added, “even though we felt it was a bit early, and in the end I think he was right." Watch Dogs' E3 2012 reveal was too early says the game's creative director
