Watch Dogs: Legion, unveiled at E3 this week, is set in a post-Brexit Britain. It deals with themes of civil unrest, the surveillance state and, from the looks of things, dodgy London accents.
Inevitably, Ubisoft’s latest open-world adventure has caught the attention of the mainstream media. Today, the BBC’s Politics Live show featured a segment on Watch Dogs: Legion, asking the question: does it offer a realistic portrayal of our future?
The segment began with a film based on an interview with Legion’s creative director, Clint Hocking, who said the team were already a year-and-a-half into development and had settled on the London location when the Brexit vote happened.
