In a news post, Ubisoft explains that the principle idea is to make more room for Title Updates 4.5 and 4.0. The former is now coming early June rather than late May, in order to give the team working on the latter time to sort out glitches, and make quality-of-life improvements. As a domino effect, this means the Invasion and Extraction mores for PvP have had to shift, further into the year.
“We have decided to move both Invasion and Extraction PVP modes to our August update,” the post reads. “We want to invest more time into solid public and private matchmaking, as it’s key for us to provide you with a smooth, enjoyable PvP experience.” Both will be free for all players, regardless of if you have the season pass, and were previously scheduled for this month, as part of Title Update 4.5. Instead, arriving in August means they’ll coincide with the new hero Darcy, the Assassin’s Creed crossover, and the single-player resistance mode.
The new roadmap:
Watch Dogs Legion’s online mode came to PC in March. Other updates have included an official mod that lets you manipulate the world, and the power to become a DJ.
