Watch Dogs Legion features descendants of AC Syndicate’s Jacob Frye

Watch Dogs Legion will let you recruit descendants of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate‘s Jacob Frye, and likely Evie Frye as well.

The revelation comes from Twitter, where a user displayed a screenshot with Sandra Cassidy, a professional hitman — hitperson — who happens to be part of the Frye bloodline.

It makes sense, really — both Legion and Syndicate share London as its setting… it’s just that Syndicate comes well before Watch Dogs in the timeline.

As we learned from Sean Crooks, Lead Producer on Watch Dogs Legion, it’s unlikely that Sandra Cassidy will be present in everyone’s game, but the Frye bloodline is certainly an attribute that will be able to be discovered (and used to your advantage) via Deep Profiling.

Watch Dogs Legion heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia where available on 29 October, and Xbox Series X and PS5 when the next-gen consoles become available. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
