On a day marked by the postponement of The Last of Us 2, the almost concomitant announcement of the Watch Dogs Legion postponement took the Ubisoft series fans by surprise. The developers of Ubisoft Toronto have thus decided to explain the reasons behind this painful choice.
Through the official Watch Dogs Legion Twitter profile pages, Ubisoft Toronto representatives explain that “our ambition is to offer you an unforgettable experience. With the ability to wear any NPC outfit, every character in our world has a persistent life and anyone from the entire population of London can be recruited into your DedSec team to become the hero of your game and the star of your story”.
The ambitions that accompany the Legion project, therefore, have led the boys of Ubisoft Toronto to decide the postponement because “in this way we are seizing the opportunity to devote additional time to our vision, raising the qualitative rate to make the project achieves the standards you deserve. We are sure, in doing so, that the delay will help make Watch Dogs Legion even more engaging and innovative. “
Announced during E3 2019, Watch Dogs Legion was originally scheduled for launch on March 6th of next year on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. According to the decision taken by Ubisoft and the developers of the Toronto subsidiary, the adventure of Legion’s post-Brexit anarchist hackers London will instead go into action in an unspecified period of 2020. On the other hand, the title will also boast of improvements for the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett versions.
