Watch Canine: Legion on-line is going through extra issues. Simply forward of its launch date — Watch Canine: Legion on-line goes stay March 9 — Ubisoft has introduced that the co-op on-line multiplayer element of the newest Watch Canine title will not be out there at launch on PC attributable to points with “sure GPUs”. That can also be the case for the flagship mode, Tactical Ops, which has been delayed to March 23. Moreover, there are issues with in-game textual content chat on PS4 and PS5 variations of Watch Canine: Legion, and a repair for this can even drop on March 23 alongside Tactical Ops. All in all, it would not bode properly.
“We’re excited to see new recruits in London after we launch the web mode of Watch Dogs: Legion on March 9,” Ubisoft mentioned on the sport’s Twitter account on Saturday. “Earlier than we launch, we wish to make you conscious of some issues which have simply come to our consideration.”
“We have recognized a difficulty within the PC model that may trigger the sport to crash for gamers with sure GPUs. The staff is engaged on fixing the problem as rapidly as doable. And within the meantime, we have made the choice to attend to launch the PC model till that is mounted. We’ll talk the brand new launch date as quickly as doable.”
“PlayStation 4/ 5 may have restricted in-game textual content chat at launch, and we’re engaged on a repair for this, which might be approaching March 23 as properly.”
“We’re dedicated to delivering the most effective expertise to all gamers and are working diligently to handle the problems outlined above. We recognize your endurance and understanding.”
It’s curious that Ubisoft says that these issues have “simply come to our consideration” as a result of Watch Canine: Legion on-line has been in testing for some time now. It was initially slated to launch in early December, however then in November, Ubisoft opted to delay it to early 2021 to prioritise fixes for single-player marketing campaign. Along with inside testing, Ubisoft additionally held technical exams with journalists in January, and for most of the people in a closed surroundings in February.
In gentle of that, it appears so much likelier that Ubisoft has identified about these points and hoped that they might have been ironed out by the point March 9 got here round. However that did not occur, which is why it has been pressured into one other delay. After all, that is simply hypothesis.
These selective delays imply that Watch Canine: Legion might be a lower than ultimate expertise at launch, for these that may play it. Tactical Ops are the flagship providing, as I mentioned, denying you the most effective that Watch Canine: Legion on-line has to supply for at the least two weeks. And should you had been hoping to leap in together with your PC buddy — Watch Canine: Legion has cross-platform play assist — there isn’t any phrase on how lengthy you may be ready.
