Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs game franchise has been extremely successful over the years and has firmly rented a space in gamers’ hearts and minds by giving them something they haven’t got before in a video game.
The initial Watch Dogs game in particular delivered gamers an experience like no other, which stunned the whole gaming industry with its sprawling GTA-like open-world, and innovative tracking and hacking mechanics.
Almost a decade after the release of the initial game, the series’ most recent game, Watch Dogs Legion, sold over 1.9 million copies in the first three days of availability itself, which clearly went to show the gaming community at large that fans of this series are not tired of playing as a certified hacker as of yet, and are instead eagerly anticipating the release date of the next game in the series.
If you have been keeping up with all the details and updates regarding the Watch Dogs game series then you must be wondering when will the new installment in this series be released.
If you are looking for Watch Dogs 4’s release date, gameplay, trailer, news, rumors, and more, then you have landed on the right page as today we will try and uncover everything we know about the next hacker game in the series, Watch Dogs 4.

Watch Dogs 4 Release Date
At the time of writing this article, we do not have any relevant or reliable information from the developers of the game regarding the release date of Watch Dogs 4.
There were numerous rumors reported a while back that hinted that Ubisoft has canceled all future Watch Dogs entries and that Legion could have most probably been the last game in the series, but nothing is certain as of yet, so we will have to wait for an official confirmation from the developers.
As far as the game’s release date is concerned, we at BenettonPlay have speculated that the game might be released by the end of 2025 or early 2026, as currently, the Watch Dogs game franchise is way down on Ubisoft’s priority list, and they should, take their time before releasing a new game rather hastily putting together an undercooked game as they did with the latest entry, Watch Dogs Legion.
We do sincerely hope that this is not the last we see of the Watch Dogs games, but it is also true that Ubisoft has not given this game series the lift-off it needs to truly be considered as an iconic series.
Watch Dogs 4 Trailer
As we stated above, Watch Dogs 4 might be released by the end of 2025 or at the beginning of 2026, so we can just speculate at the moment an official reveal trailer of the game could be released sometime in 2024. Ubisoft might showcase a cinematic Watch Dogs 4 Trailer and later a gameplay trailer as well, but nothing is officially confirmed as of yet, so we will have to wait and see what transpires.
The cinematic trailer for Watch Dogs 4 will give us an idea of what the new game in the series will be like and who will be the main protagonist.
There are many fan-made Watch Dogs 4 trailers on YouTube at the moment but these types of fan-made trailers are just for entertainment purposes only, and we do not want you all to get hyped for nothing after watching these trailers as the developers themselves did not release them.
Watch Dogs 4 Storyline
We do not have any information for Watch Dogs 4 Storyline but we all know Ubisoft really messed up in terms of the storyline of their latest Watch Dogs game, but we hope they go back to creating an engaging protagonist with a meaningful story to make them up, more like the first Watch Dogs game.
Although the original Watch Dogs has its fair share of critics, there is no denying that it has one of the best storylines in the series to date, closely followed by the second. It was dark and gritty and had players hooked on the story of Aiden Pierce and the personal tragedy that he suffered.
The fans wanted the second game to continue Aiden’s story but Ubisoft had other plans. They introduced a completely different storyline and character in the second game, and once again did the same with the third game. All the games had good mechanics and eye-popping graphics but only the first game had the best feel and storyline.
We believe that for Watch Dogs 4 to be a hit that Ubisoft so desperately needs at the moment, they need to return to the roots and make a story like that of Aiden’s story or introduce a completely new character once again but time genuinely with a good plot and storyline.
Watch Dogs 4 Gameplay
The gameplay in every Watch Dogs game has progressively gotten better than its predecessor over the years and we expect to retain the third-person, action-adventure formula this time as well.
The first Watch Dogs game had good parkour mechanics and hacking mechanics, whereas the second one had players amazed by its seamless combat, crafting, and tools mechanics. The third game was even better in terms of movement and combat.
So as far as gameplay in Watch Dogs 4 is concerned, we believe that Ubisoft has all the mechanics and engines in place to make an impressive Watch Dogs title, jam-packed together with all the best gameplay elements of the previous 3 games in this series, like retaining the third-person mode, hacking mechanics, an in-depth story, and more.
Now that we know what the game’s gameplay is going to be like, let us discuss the platforms on which Watch Dogs 4 hopes to be released.
Watch Dogs 4 Platforms
This is a tough one to speculate as the recent Watch Dogs title, Watch Dogs Legion, was released on a variety of notable platforms like Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, and we believe that Ubisoft might stick to most of these platforms for their new game.
However, we also believe that the next Watch Dogs game won’t be released for the previous-gen consoles such as PS4, and Xbox One and will only be released for PC and next-gen consoles due to hardware limitations.
