Another delay for 2020.

Watch Dogs: Legion Multiplayer Mode Has Been Delayed

Ubisoft has announced that the online multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion has been delayed into 2021.

The multiplayer will see up to four players complete co-op missions together, or just cause havoc in the vast open city of London, England. The online mode for the newly-released Ubisoft title was a mode that many players have been looking forward to.

Initially the Watch Dogs: Legion online multiplayer mode was set to release next month across all platforms. Now Ubisoft has announced that it has been delayed, and will instead release “early 2021”.

The reason given for the delay of the multiplayer mode is so that the developers can focus on fixing the reported issues with the single player campaign.

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,” said Ubisoft in a blog post.

This will allow us to focus on fixing issues with single players, and it will give us more time to test the Online experience to help ensure a smooth launch of the mode.
