Did Ubisoft Sneak A New Game Announcement Inside Watch Dogs 2?

In Watch Dogs 2, there’s a mission about stealing a video game trailer from an in-game version of Ubisoft. With WD2 almost out, footage from that trailer has leaked online, and we’re wondering... is it actually a real game?

I mean, my first thought watching this was: I would actually play this. Those spaceships, that colour palette, the suggestion that it’s a game about space salvage...it’s very much my jam. Hiding a trailer like this inside another game about hacking would be a very cool way to announce something.


And if it is just a fake trailer? Well, if someone else could go actually make this game, that’d be great.

We’ve contacted Ubisoft for comment.
