Watch Dogs: Legion spec work is “utterly voluntary”, Ubisoft shrug and recommend

Ubisoft have defended their decision to source some of Watch Dogs: Legion‘s soundtrack through spec work, saying it’s “completely voluntary” for fans to create music hoping Ubi might pick it and pay them for their work.

They’re encouraging exploitative labour practices with a goal not much different to a competition offering Watch Dogs t-shirts as prizes for drawing cool hackers.

Multiple three-player teams will head out to hunt monsters while surviving against other real-life players competing for the same targets. We’ll have to wait and see if this means it could launch with the mode when it makes its way to the PlayStation 4 later in 2019.
