There’s a lot of easter eggs and crossovers in Watch Dogs that link to other Ubisoft games but we think this one is one of the best yet.

While taking part in one of many of Watch Dog’s convoy takedown missions, one of your targets is Abstergo Entertainment CEO Olivier Garneau, giving you the opportunity to take the head honcho out for good…

Ubisoft’s decision to plant Assassin’s creed in reality meant this was a possibility, meaning you can take the all-powerful Animus creator out for good. You’re meant to be capturing him alive with a takedown but there’s probably no harm in flinging a grenade his way for good measure.

The mission in particular is called “Requiescat in Pace”, a reference to Ezio’s Assassin's Creed takedowns. Check it out for yourself below…

What other cool little Easter Eggs have you found in Watch Dogs?

Do you think we’ll ever see an official crossover title from Ubisoft?

why is he targeted? he seems like a decent man, and there was no indication of him being evil or a templar in black flag

In AC4 at the near end of the game Oliver leaves for Chicago for a shareholders meeting but never returns to his office in Paris. The games are feeling even more connected. Hopefully there's a crossover.

I disagree with the title. the entire point is that you DON'T kill them. you fail the mission if they're killed.

Yep well I said you're meant to be capturing him alive, but there's nothing stopping you from killing him?

Some missions, like this one, are failed if you kill him (personal experience). I suggest changing the title

I know that, but I think part of the Easter Egg in itself is that you can kill the Abstergo CEO if you want to. I went through and took him out without killing him, but this is just highlighting a cool little extra for those interested :)

There is also a batman easter egg where you find Bruce Wayne hanging out in the city. No jokes; I have seen the screens.
