If you were hoping to get a taste of Watch Dogs: Legion's multiplayer action once it launches this December 3rd, I'm afraid I bring a bit of bad news. In an effort to fix all of the current issues, as well as to ensure the new online modes get as polished as they can possibly be, Ubisoft has now pushed the whole update back to early 2021.

"Since the launch of Watch Dogs: Legion, some of you continue to have technical issues preventing you from enjoying the game," reads the brief update. "The dev team is committed to fixing these issues and will not stop until everyone can experience the game as intended."

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

Just as a reminder, these online modes will feature both cooperative missions and PvP brawls. The co-op mode will feature plenty of missions for 2-4 players, while the PvP side of things will feature some rather wacky modes like the 8-player Spider Arena that will allow you to go on a rampage with your little robo-arachnid friend. Should be pretty fun!

Once the update gets a proper release date I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a tiny bit more about the delay over at the official website.
