Watch Dogs: Legion will not have its multiplayer mode next week as originally planned.
Ubisoft has just announced that it will delay all online functions until next year while concentrating its efforts on fixing various technical problems in the game.
Ubisoft initially intended to release Legion’s multiplayer modes, which offer a free cooperative mode and perform 2-4 player missions, along with several PvP challenges, in a post-release update on December 3rd. Unfortunately, the arrival of the game was bogged down by errors, some relatively minor, others considerably more serious, and Ubisoft has now committed to focus its efforts on fixing all of this.
“Since the launch of Watch Dogs: Legion,” wrote the editor, “some of you continue to have technical problems that prevent you from enjoying the game. The development team is committed to fixing these issues and will not stop until everyone can experience the game as it should be.
In this week’s 2.20 update for PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia and PC, we want to fix all these issues. Ubisoft says it will continue to work on other issues, improving stability and PC graphics optimizations are expected next month, for example, in an attempt to deliver 60fps for high-end GPUs, and with all this they have decided to delay Watch Dogs: Legion multiplayer mode until early 2021.
“This will allow us to focus on solving problems in single-player mode,” wrote the editor, “and give us more time to test the online experience to help ensure a smooth launch in this mode.
