It wouldn't be E3 without a few leaks, and it looks like the first major one is upon us. According to a listing by Amazon (opens in new tab) in the United Kingdom, a game called "Watch Dogs: Legion" is on the way. It's already available for preorder, and there are plenty of details to extrapolate from the listing. The listing was discovered by TheNerdMag initially.

The title is set in London and focuses on a dystopian society. It seems like individuals have circuitry embedded in their minds so that their actions can be monitored and controlled by the government. The Amazon listing says the following.

Watch Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It's a post-Brexit world in which society, politics, and technology have changed and altered London's fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries... London makes total sense for Watch Dogs, as the city has one of the highest surveillance levels in the world making this the perfect playground.

The fact that the "London makes total sense for Watch Dogs" phrase is in there is a little odd and points to an error. There's a chance that the page was set up by a third-party after coming across a leak. Kotaku says that it was able to verify the game independently as well.

According to a new listing on the Microsoft Store, the title runs at 4K resolution on the company's latest console. It should look sharp on the machine. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. We're guessing it's going to run at 30 frames per second (FPS) on Xbox One X and possibly 60 on the next-generation Xbox.
