The online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion has been delayed, Ubisoft has confirmed.
An online multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion was set to release on December 3rd but developers Ubisoft announced a delay to the mode last week, pushing it into 2021.
The video game, which released on October 29th for PC and current-gen consoles, has been plagued with issues including game crashes, FPS problems, save fails, and more.
Ubisoft has been addressing the issues with various patches and decided to delay the online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion in order to continue fixing the game’s problems.
In a brand new blog post announcing the game’s most recent 2.20 update, Ubisoft confirmed a delay to the online mode as the development team shift their focus to addressing Watch Dogs: Legion’s various problems.
The blog post reads: “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.”
Ubisoft then refers to the company’s previous State Of The Game update, explaining that more improvements will be coming. They said: “We have more improvement and quality of life features in store next month, including more stability improvements and further graphics optimisations for PC to reach our goal of consistent 60FPS for higher-end GPUs.”
Touching on the plethora of issues players have been suffering, Ubisoft confirms that its development team is “working very hard to make it the best experience it can be”.
No date has been announced for the online mode, and it seems we’ll have to wait a few more months for additional details.
