Due to some bugs detected on various platforms, Ubisoft was forced to postpone the release of the online multiplayer of Watch Dogs: Legion next year.
Developers prefer to concentrate their efforts on solving various problems of performances recorded by the game, rather than engaging in a new mode. The launch was scheduled for on December 3st, but now Ubisoft has postponed it to an unspecified date of 2021.
“Since the launch of Watch Dogs: Legions we have had a lot of technical issues that have prevented you from fully enjoying the game. The developers are focused on solving them until everyone can properly use the features of the game.
As a first step, we will publish update 2.20 on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Stadia. The update will add a manual save option on PC, plus additional game stability improvements on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PlayStation 4. "
Once available, the online mode will include two to four player co-op and PvP challenges. Among the most interesting there is Spiderbot Arena, a small battleroyal in which robot spiders will compete.
