Watch Dogs built using a brand new engine called Disrupt
Ubisoft has apparently built a second next-generation game engine for their ambitious new title Watch Dogs.
Anyone with an interest in game development might be forgiven for thinking that the Anvil Next engine that powers Assassin's Creed III was being used to make Watch Dogs but instead Ubisoft has built a second next-gen engine called Disrupt.
Watch Dogs' technical director Sebastien Viard said on Twitter, "Watch Dogs uses a brand new engine called Disrupt, developed specifically for the game at Ubisoft Montreal. It's not Assassin's Creed engine."
The game's development is being led on the PC at Ubisoft Montreal with the help of Ubisoft Bucharest, Paris, Quebec and Newcastle-based Driver studio Reflections. It has been confirmed for release on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
