Those waiting on the Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer component, you’re going to have to wait some more, as Ubisoft has announced that it has been delayed to “early 2021.”
In a new announcement regarding the game’s latest patch which is dropping this week (Title Update 2.20), the company also confirmed that due to the dev team sorting the tech issues the game currently has, they are delaying the game’s online multiplayer mode to an unspecified month and day in 2021.
Here’s the part of the announcement regarding the Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer mode delay:
As part of our commitment to fixing the game’s issues, we’ve decided to delay the Online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion to early 2021. This will allow us to focus on fixing issues with single player, and it will give us more time to test the Online experience to help ensure a smooth launch of the mode.
Once this week’s patch is out, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
If you haven’t gotten it yet, read up on our Watch Dogs Legion review where we said, “If anything, I feel that Watch Dogs Legion was a generation too early. Maybe with a sequel (if it gets one) Ubisoft can use the power of the SSD to really make the NPCs and your attachment to them meaningful. As for right now, the promise was only partially kept.”
