The current generation versions of Watch Dogs will require a mandatory installation similar to Grand Theft Auto 5, creative director Jonathan Morin has confirmed.

Speaking to at Eurogamer Expo this morning, Morin revealed that the Xbox 360 version will ship on two discs - one being an installation disc and the second being a play disc.

"Yes, there are two discs," he said. "It's the same thing as GTA [5]."

It is assumed that the Wii U version will carry similar requirements, with the PlayStation 3 version expected to ship on a single Blu-ray Disc.

It isn't yet known how much storage space will be required for the installation.

As for when we'll see footage of the current-gen versions, Morin isn't sure. "That you should ask marketing," he said. "I have no idea. But yeah, it looks pretty good."

Watch Dogs launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC & Xbox One on November 22. A PlayStation 4 version is due to follow on November 29.

The Wii U uses a proprietry disc made by Panisonic that is similar to bluray and has 25 GB capacity. I.E. I very much doubt it will need two discs if the PS3 version is on one.

That's not an issue in the slightest. Presumably the install play disc to a separate USB drive trick will work, just as in GTA's case.
