The databases of age rating agencies are an excellent source of information on unannounced projects. The most recent example of this is the ESRB. Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions of Watch Dogs Complete Edition appeared on its website.
The change was made recently. Previously, the game's profile only included the already released PC, Xbox One and PS4 versions. As the title suggests, it's a collection containing the first installment with all DLCs.
Porting Watch Dogs Complete Edition to next-gen consoles makes sense, especially given that the protagonist of the original game, Aiden Pearce, will return the protagonist of the story expansion Bloodline for Watch Dogs: Legion. It would be a good idea to remind the gamers of his previous adventures. Although we will play the game on next-gens thanks to backwards compatibility, we expect the native version to offer graphical improvements.
Of course, until the official confirmation of the port, these reports should be taken with a grain of salt. However, ESRB databases are usually a very reliable source, and it is rare for projects that appeared in them not to be ultimately announced.
As a reminder, the first Watch Dogs was released in 2014 on PC and Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Wii U. The latest instalment of the series, Watch Dogs: Legion, debuted on October 29, this year on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia streaming platform. Tomorrow, the game will be released on Xbox Series X/S, and the PS5 version will debut on November 12.
