Watch Dogs 2 confirmed by YouTuber flaunting promo swag

Ubisoft’s second stab at the hack-happy stealth shooter Watch Dogs has been all but confirmed after a YouTube personality flaunted swag bearing the game’s name and logo on Twitter.

The Rad Brad, a YouTube gamer with 6 million subscribers, posted a tweet on Wednesday thanking Ubisoft for the Watch Dogs 2 promotional items.

The gift box bearing a Watch Dogs 2 logo apparently features a pair of branded Ray Ban sunglasses.

The likely unsanctioned post seemingly confirms Watch Dogs 2 will be officially announced during Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 2016 later this month.

Ubisoft has yet to comment on a presumably unwanted early leak of the news.

The first instalment of the game required players to hack and manipulated into Chicago’s Central Operating System in order to hunt down those who control it.

The original title was one of the most-hyped moving into the new generation, but ultimately fell slightly short of expectations.

Can Ubisoft fulfil them this time around? We’re likely to get the first idea at E3 on June 13.
