Creative director Clint Hocking has acknowledged that the game takes place in a post-Brexit London, in which the UK has become a surveillance state.
A leak last week hinted that much of this was the case, but the sheer scale of that idea, and the ambition on show, is striking. The game’s official name was confirmed by Ubisoft on Twitter shortly after the leak.
Legion’s London setting was actually hinted at in Watch Dogs 2 – a post-release patch extended the game’s ending, adding a set of coordinates that pointed out the Brixton area in south London. Well played, Ubisoft.
