An infamous prison, known for being nearly impossible to escape. It figures prominently in many movies. The prison sits on an island just off San Francisco, surrounded by treacherous currents. 
―In-game description.

Alcatraz Island is a World Location in Watch Dogs 2.


Alcatraz Island is located in the middle of the bay. It can only be reached by boat or by fast traveling there via a kiosk.


Alcatraz Island is an island holding a notorious abandoned prison. The outside of the island is very run down with untamed plants and broken buildings. A small tower can be also be found in the front. Many small roads and sidewalks are outlined on the island for visitors to pass through. A small recreational area holds a kiosk, a bathroom and other assortments. Unlike most locations, Marcus may freely access the inside of the prison, even the roof. Inside a tour guide is available, describing the horror of the incidents that had occurred there. The island is mildly active during the day and inactive during the night. Alcatraz provides a stunning view of San Francisco along with the rest of the Bay Area.

There are two restricted areas, both of which are controlled by the Bratva. One on the northern-most section of the island in the construction area, being patrolled by five Bratva soldiers and a guard dog, and the other is on the northeast side of the island, being patrolled by four Bratva soldiers.
