Watch Dogs Legion, online revolutionary legions

With the multiplayer sector of Watch Dogs: Legion now available on consoles and Google Stadia, the Ubisoft team offers further details on what support will be offered to the title in the near future.

Specifically, the developers of the software French house have listened to the requests of the community of digital revolutionaries, confirming that in the future it will be possible to dedicate themselves to the title in the company of their friends, without the need to be active on the same platform. At the request of a player, the official Twitter account of Watch Dogs: Legion - you can find the twitter at the bottom of this news - has in fact announced its intention to make cross-play available in the near future. The functionality linked to the online sector will be activated through a specific update of the title, but at the moment Ubisoft has not offered specific details regarding a possible publication window for the patch.

Pending of further updates on this front, we remind you that at the moment the online sector of Watch Dogs: Legion does not support any form of cross-play, not even the cross-generational one. We also report that the online debut of Watch Dogs: Legion on PC has been postponed to a later date, following a series of technical issues identified by the development team.

Watch Dogs: Legion's new Online mode for PC players has been delayed indefinitely, whilst the Tactical Ops mode has been pushed back to March 23 for Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia, too.

'We've identified an issue in the PC version that can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs,' developer Ubisoft said in a tweet. 'The team is working on fixing the issue as quickly as possible, and in the meantime, we've made the decision to wait to launch the PC version until this is fixed.

'We will communicate the new launch date as soon as possible.'

'We are committed to delivering the best experience to all players and are working diligently to address the issues outlined above. We appreciate your patience and understanding.'

The statement further advises that given 'an issue' that makes the game crash on consoles and Stadia during the Tactical Op mode, that mode has also been pushed back to March 23, while the PlayStation 4 and 5 will have 'limited in-game text chat at launch' until a fix is deployed on March 23 as well.

The Watch Dogs: Legion multiplayer mode release date was set for March 9, and Ubisoft recently gave players an early preview of how it will work, including Spiderbot Arena, a drone deathmatch complete with power-ups and killstreaks. It will also contribute to your seasonal progression, too.
