Yesterday, we talked about how Ubisoft delayed three of its upcoming games (which is a rare occasion), and regarding one of them, the developers shared their opinion.
„Our ambition with Watch Dogs: Legion is to deliver an unforgettable experience that changes the way you play and think about open-world games. With our Play as Anyone feature, 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 personal story.
We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to deliver this ambitious vision at the best possible level of quality and bring our near-future London to life in the way it deserves. We are confident this will ensure Watch Dogs: Legion is the immersive, innovative experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play. We look forward to sharing more with you very soon!”, the developers’ statement reads on Twitter.
And we weren’t wrong yesterday when we talked about the delays! „Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion will be released between Q2 and Q3 of next fiscal year [July-December 2020] and will be optimised for the next generation of consoles,” said Frédérick Duguet, the chief financial officer of Ubisoft, during the company’s financial earnings call. So Ubisoft delayed all three games because of the next-gen consoles, namely the PlayStation 5 and the currently codenamed Xbox Project Scarlett. Both are set to drop in late 2020.
Watch Dogs: Legion is currently officially announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC, and with Duguet’s comment, we can now safely call the London hacking adventure a cross-gen title instead of a current-gen one.
