from the Watch Dogs: Legion team
informs us that the promised
multiplayer update for Watch Dog: Legion is going to be delayed. It starts out
indicating this will launch
Tuesday, but then follows to indicate the PC release is delayed. Crashes on some
GPUs need to be fixed before the PC edition is released. Ubisoft says it will
update us "as soon as possible" on when that will happen. The console editions
will launch as planned, but the Tactical Op is expected to follow on March 23rd.
Here's the tweet, translated from image to text for your convenience, and into
upper/lower case from all-caps in an abundance of good taste:
we're excited to see new recruits in London when we launch the online mode of
Watchdogs: Legion on March 9. Before we launch, we want to make you aware of the
few things that have just come to our attention:
- We've identified an issue in the PC version that can cause the game to
crash for players with certain GPUs. 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 have also identified an issue that can cause the game to crash during
the Tactical Op. Therefore we have made the decision to launch it on Xbox,
PlayStation, and Stadia on March 23.
- PlayStation 4/5 will have limited in-game text chat on launch, and we
are working on a fix for this, which will be coming on March 23 as well.
We're 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.
