Ubisoft Reflections is collaborating with Ubisoft Montreal on the development of Watch Dogs, online CVs have revealed.

According to the LinkedIn profiles of multiple Reflections staff, the studio is on board in producer and level design roles.

Ubisoft Reflections' most recent game 'Driver: San Francisco' launched in September 2011 to critical acclaim, receiving a Metacritic score of 80.

In addition to San Francisco, the studio has previously developed other games in the Driver series, and collaborated with Ubisoft Paris on Just Dance 3.

Prior to becoming a Ubisoft-owned studio, it also developed PSOne classics Destruction Derby 1 & 2.

Ubisoft regularly enforces development of its titles across multiple studios. Assassin's Creed: Revelations, for example, was developed by six Ubisoft studios.

Watch Dogs was announced during Ubisoft's E3 press conference on Monday.

The game is an open-world hi-tech thriller that lets players hack into electrical objects within the environment.

A release date is currently unknown.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot hinted that the game could launch on next-generation consoles in addition to its planned 360/PS3/PC release.
