Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer came after several significant delays to its release date. The online mode was originally due to release on all platforms on December 3, 2020, however Ubisoft delayed the rollout to March 9, 2021 while it worked on addressing major single-player issues. On March 5, Ubisoft communicated an online delay for the PC version after identifying an issue that “can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs” only days prior. Thankfully, these issues were resolved for patch 3.22, which finally introduced Watch Dogs Legion multiplayer on PC.
