Ubisoft Registers Four ‘Watch Dogs’ Domains, Hints At A Possible Film

Share And Comment

We recently talked about Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell stuck in the middle of a bidding war between Paramount and Warner Bros. for the game’s movie rights. Well it seems Ubisoft’s open world action-adventure “Watch Dogs“, might be given the Hollywood treatment as well, with the developer registering four movie-oriented domains recently.


On the back of an impressive showing at this year’s E3 expo, which gave gamers a peek at some gameplay, Ubisoft can see the potential to take Watch Dogs beyond consoles to the larger screen. The developer took the first step towards making that a reality by registering these domains on June 14th:

  • WatchDogsmovie.com
  • WatchDogsthemovie.com
  • Watch-Dogsmovie.com
  • Watch-Dogsthemovie.com

We probably won’t see a film for a few years if at all, so this could be just protection of property on Ubisoft’s part, making sure nobody decides to come along and make camp on these domains. Watch Dogs is becoming a hit with fans, with the E3 demo already reaching over 5 million views on YouTube so a film makes sense, especially with such a captivating storyline and setting.

Watch Dogs is set to be released in 2013 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. If you would like to see a Watch Dogs movie, make sure to let us know in the comments below.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
