Back in October ahead of the launch of Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft detailed the online co-op and competitive modes that would be added to the game after launch, including four player Tactical Ops missions, Invasions by other players and the PvP Spider-Bot Arena.
At the time, these modes were slated to arrive as part of a free update on December 3, but Ubisoft has updated their plans for Watch Dogs: Legion’s online components. In order to focus on fixing issues with the single-player campaign, the open world hacking game is now set to add the aforementioned multiplayer modes early next year, as the team aims to “ensure a smooth launch” of the planned update. This isn’t the first time that a Watch Dogs game’s multiplayer elements didn’t launch as planned, as Watch Dogs 2’s seamless multiplayer also struggled to operate at launch before the issues were eventually smoothed out.
