Ubisoft's new game Watch Dogs: Legion has had its multiplayer delayed until 2021. The team at Ubisoft have decided that there are bigger priorities that the team needs to face, other than releasing new modes. So, multiplayer won't be released on December 3rd as was initially announced.
Watch Dogs: Legion was released earlier this year by Ubisoft, as an exploration into a dystopian post-Brexit London. The campaign is all about the player attempting to foil the plans of the corrupted government and police force as London becomes an increasingly dangerous place.
Since, the game has been a little overshadowed by Assassin's Creed: Valhalla which came out very shortly after Legion's release. Many players have moved on to the Assassin's Creed game with the intention to revisit Watch Dogs: Legion when the multiplayer comes out, which will be a little while later now.
First reported by Eurogamer, a new update from the team at Ubisoft says that they're focusing on technical issues first. "The dev team is committed to fixing these issues and will not stop until everyone can experience the game as intended."
The post continues with: "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."
As such, they're releasing patch 2.20 for all platforms this week to hopefully iron out some of the creases within the game. You can find those patch notes here.
Since the release of Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft has said that they are going to continue making improvements to the game as well as new quality of life changes. Although it has been a struggle here and there for the team, the post ends on a positive note.
"Watch Dogs: Legion has been an incredible journey for us, and our teams are working very hard to make it the best experience it can be. We are blown away by your continued support, the fan art, the incredible cosplays and the many, many screenshots, videos and streams we have seen. Thank you!"
We'll all just have to wait a little longer to pile into London with friends then.
