Ubisoft has confirmed that crossplay and cross-generation-play is on the way to Watch Dogs Legion’s Online Modes.
While there’s no firm schedule for release just yet, the official Watch Dogs Twitter account has recently begun responding to requests for the feature by stating that “the development team is working on adding this feature to the game with a later update”.
“While crossplay and cross-generation-play is currently not available for the Watch Dogs: Legion Online Mode, the development team is working on adding this feature to the game with a later update,” a Ubisoft representative said in just one of several tweets made by the official social media account over the last few days.
It’s welcomed news to DedSec fans who are looking forward to teaming up with their pals for a little co-operative play, particularly as Ubisoft recently delayed Watch Dogs: Legion’s online mode on PC. It was due out on 9th March, but the developer said it had identified an issue in the PC version that can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs, and had taken the decision to delay online indefinitely.
It was the second delay for Watch Dogs: Legion’s online portion after an initial delay to early 2021 for various technical issues.
