In Watch Dogs 2, San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area appears as the main setting of the game. The player is free to explore the city and the surrounding area.


San Francisco is a city of many wonderful landmarks, portrayed in the game as world locations, the equivalent to City Hotspots from the first game. These landmarks are prominent in-game and in real life.


San Francisco has many transportation methods, which include Cable Cars, trolleys, trams, buses, taxis, and Taxi Boats.

Law Enforcement

The San Francisco Police Department upholds the law of the San Francisco jurisdiction while Oakland Police Department are responsible of Oakland jurisdiction. Both agencies may initiate a joint pursuit if the suspect are driving between the jurisdictions. SFPD and OPD will immediately respond any 911 calls as well as investigate any suspicious source of gunfires or any other situations and SWAT will also respond to situations that are too dangerous for the normal officers to resolve.

Sports Teams

In real life, San Francisco has two sports teams: the San Francisco Giants and the San Francisco 49ers, with the Beatniks acting as a parody of the Giants. It is implied that a parody of the 49ers exists in the Watch Dogs universe, as revealed by one of the pedestrian text conversations which states that "we [San Francisco] technically don't have a football team anymore", referencing the 49ers' move to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara (a part of the Silicon Valley) which is not depicted in the game.
