Watch Dogs Legion Online

It looks like a virtual group trip to London is on hold for PC players.

The Watch Dogs Legion dev team has taken to Twitter to reveal that that the game’s cooperative online update will be delayed once more for PC players. The news comes just weeks after Ubisoft announced a March 9, 2021, release date, after delaying the online component from its original launch in December 2020.

It seems that certain GPUs are at the root of the problem, which reportedly lead to game crashes. Even more upsetting is the lack of an updated release date, with the dev team stating:

“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”.


While this is likely a huge disappointment to the PC players who have anticipated the mode since Watch Dogs Legion‘s launch in October, console and Stadia players didn’t get off scott-free. The raid-like component to Online, Tactical Ops, was also found to cause crashes across all platforms and was subsequently pushed back. Tactical Ops will arrive in a couple of weeks on March 23, 2021. The dev team also noted that PlayStation would experience a “limited in-game text chat” at launch, with a full fix also arriving on March 23.

Watch Dogs Legion Online will allow players to explore the game’s dystopian London with up to three friends. Online comes with a host of new content, including seasonal challenges, Tactical Ops (eventually), and a whole city to explore with friends.

Watch Dog’s Legion Online will arrive this Tuesday (March 9, 2021) for console and Stadia players. PC players will need to bide their time, however, as they await a confirmed release date.

We have a favour to ask

We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
