Watch Dogs Creative Director Talks About That Awful Trailer
Remember that awful-looking trailer for Watch Dogs that we posted yesterday? It made some of us hesitant about the current generation version of the game due to how, well, bad it looks visually.
Although we don’t know specifics about the graphics of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, since most game footage has been from high end PCs and the PS4, we’re certainly hoping it looks a lot better than that trailer. Turns out that it might be that way.

According to Watch Dogs creative director Jonathan Morin, this trailer was a bit of a mess up. The ‘someone’ who messed up did not know the tech or what stuff to check. When a fan asked why Ubisoft would give the green light to such a trailer and release it, Morin stated:
“You know sometimes 100s of people working together causes communications issues lets just say that.”
Basically, this video wasn’t meant to be released. At least, not in its current form.
Morin then went on to reassure fans that Watch Dogs has better graphics than demonstrated in that trailer, and there’s nothing to worry about. He also appears to be rather amused by the general and media reactions to the trailer.
“No worry to have on graphics at all, believe me” said Morin to a fan.
“Love your passion guys but I see the game every day and I can tell you, this trailer is far from it,” he commented to another fan.
When another fan asked about the graphical quality of the Wii U version, Morin stated that Watch Dogs looks fine on Nintendo’s hardware.
“Agreed, I played the Wii U version last week… Should be fine,” he said.
Morin concluded that this trailer was “hilarious in its own way” because of the reacction it got out of the media and the public.
I wonder what went wrong with this one, then?
