Three “clues” have been unearthed that all seemingly point toward the development of Watch Dogs 3. Watch Dogs was released by Ubisoft in 2014 and was a huge commercial success. The sequel landed in 2016 and also received favorable reviews. Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft has not commented on the rumors in regard to a possible third title in the series.

Clues that appear to suggest Watch Dogs 3 is in the works have been reported on. Firstly, Ubisoft issued an April Fools’ Day prank that allowed gamers to “hack” into their Uplay platform (Watch Dogs is an action-adventure game based on hackers and hacking activities). Secondly, a message was posted on the Watch Dogs 2 Twitter account that stated “This is Everything.” The tweet was soon deleted, but there has been speculation it could be linked with a viral campaign for Watch Dogs 3.

The latest clue has been revealed in a video posted on the YouTube channel UbiCentral. The clue came by virtue of "Sam", a virtual personal assistant Ubisoft is working on that is currently only available in Canada. The assistant was asked if there was going to be a third game in the series, and it offered this response:

Watch Dogs 3 is not finished yet, but from the last early build I tried it’s very solid. The Dev team works wonders! Can’t wait for you to try it!

Of course, this is still all rumor and conjecture, but it is likely Ubisoft will have something to say about the situation at the E3 convention in June.
