Watch Dogs 2 PC Release Date
After the somewhat rocky launch of the first Watch Dogs, the development team has devoted themselves to addressing fans’ complaints. They want to implement as much player feedback as possible. Watch Dogs 2 will have many improvements specific to the PC version. The game will have full 4K support, Ultra Textures and Extra Details options. Most importantly, the team promises an uncapped FPS, which is a huge step up from the first game.
