Watch Dogs Legion PS5 PS4

Ubisoft has delayed the online mode planned for Watch Dogs Legion to early 2021 so that it can "focus on fixing issues with single player". The multiplayer offering, which plans to offer four-player co-op and the classic Invasion mode from the first game, was planned to arrive next week. There's no word on whether this delay affects the paid season pass content also planned for release.

In a post on the official Ubisoft website, the French publisher said: "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." This update will be replaced with patches to improve performance and squash further bugs and glitches. "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."
