Major Watch Dogs: Legion Update Delayed

At this point, Watch Dogs: Legion players have become quite familiar with delays, and unfortunately, that trend will be continuing once again. Ubisoft announced today that the game's upcoming 4.0 title update, which was planned to release this week, has been pushed back. Luckily, the delay itself won't be an unreasonably lengthy one as the update will now release on May 4th instead.

In a message shared on social media today, Ubisoft informed fans that the 4.0 update for Watch Dogs: Legion has been delayed from this week and will instead now arrive next week on May 4. The reason for the delay comes after Ubisoft said it found some bugs with the update that it needed to fix beforehand. "While working on the different pieces of content, we encountered some issues that we need to address before deploying the update," Ubisoft explained. "We want the quality of this update to be in the best shape it can be. As such, we've made the decision to push the release date to May 4 to ensure a great launch."

As mentioned, this has become somewhat common with Watch Dogs: Legion in recent history. The most notable instance of a feature for the game getting delayed came with the online mode. While this aspect is now live in Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft continually had to delay the feature a handful of times before it finally arrived just about one month ago.

At the very least, this delay for update 4.0 in Watch Dogs Legion won't be a vast one. Although I'm sure some fans would have liked to have experienced the new content later on this week, for Ubisoft to have delayed this patch by only a couple of days I assume won't bother a lot of folks.

If you're looking to catch up on Watch Dogs: Legion prior to the arrival of update 4.0, you can currently get your hands on the game on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
