Watch Dogs Legion’s online co-op mode was set to launch on all platforms on March 9, 2021, but PC players will have to wait a bit longer due to a game crashing issue that has caused a new delay.
Ubisoft shared the news on Twitter, saying that the PC version of this new mode can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs. The team is working on the fix “as quickly as possible” and will communicate the new date as soon as it can.
While online co-op will still launch for PlayStation, Xbox, and Stadia on March 9, the raid-like Tactical Operations will now be released on March 23, 2021.
Additionally, PS5 and PS4 players will have to deal with “limited in-game text chat” until March 23.
We recently got to preview Watch Dogs Legion’s online co-op modes, and said “The co-op missions remind me a lot of Assassin’s Creed Unity’s approach to friendly multiplayer, in that they are effectively identical to the fare you find in the main campaign, just redesigned with more participants in mind.”
In our Watch Dogs Legion review, we said its “bold use of roguelike mechanics in an open-world action game pays off in interesting ways, making this visit to near-future London feel more varied than the previous two games.”
