With E3 2016 right around the corner, prominent YouTube personality The Rad Brad tipped the rumor mill into overdrive yesterday after posting a photo of what appeared to be a promo item for the sequel. First spotted on NeoGAF, the image embedded below showcases a leather sunglasses case that features the iconic Watch Dogs font.
Perhaps Ubisoft is teasing a totally new setting for the sequel in place of Chicago? It seems we’ll find out one way or the other soon enough.

Gunning for a “new tone” with Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft has evidently taken heed of some of the criticism directed at the 2014 original – formulaic design and weak story, for instance – but whether fans can expect a new protagonist to replace Aiden Pearce and potentially a new city to hack is up for question.
Watch Dogs 2 is all but locked for a grand reveal at E3 2016. Below, you’ll find the full video of The Rad Brad unboxing the gift box in question.
