The Watch Dogs 2 release date may have escaped

Ill-timed ads to blame once again.

According to an ad that appeared briefly on IGN (snapped by NeoGAF user JehutyRunner), Watch Dogs 2 will release November 15 and will indeed be set in San Francisco. Assuming it's accurate, it won't be the first time a mistimed ad has leaked a release date, and it surely won't be the last.

Yesterday, Ubisoft released a 30-second teaser of a man fiddling with his smartphone, presumably to bring down society, cause a stock market crash or change the settings on his psychedelic light wall.

Meanwhile, an official site is counting down to the big reveal on June 8, so we won't have long to wait to verify this leak.

The PC Gaming Show returns to E3 on Monday June 13, featuring game announcements, updates to existing favourites, and conversation with top developers. You can find out what to expect here, and also book free tickets to attend in person at The PC Gaming Show will be broadcast live through from 11:30 am PT/2:30 pm ET/6:30 pm GMT, but be sure to tune in beforehand to check out The Steam Speedrun, in which one lucky winner will buy as many games as they can in three minutes.
