Along with announcing an official release date for the PlayStation 4, Sony also announced a new movie project during their conference at Gamescom.
Sony Pictures along with New Regency will team up with gaming giant Ubisoft to make Watch Dogs, a movie based on the hotly anticipated upcoming video game in which technologies are used to your advantage and nothing—and no one—are hidden from the all-seeing eyes of big brother. In the game you play as master hacker Aiden Pearce, a man whose past leads to a violent family tragedy. While trying to find those responsible, Aiden also finds himself becoming a vigilante and helping others who are being harmed.

We’ve seen many gameplay demos for Watch Dogs, and they’re all incredible. With its relevance to hot button current events and the fact that Ubisoft has been on a tear setting up movie adaptations of their intellectual properties (Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon), this movie seemed destined to be announced eventually.
Watch Dogs will be released on November 19th, four days after the PS4 (no word yet on when the Xbox One is officially releasing), and you can pre-order the game on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U now.
Are you excited about a Watch Dogs movie, even having never played the game?
