Publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Toronto have delayed the release of the online multiplayer update for Watch Dogs: Legion from December 3 to early 2021. 

"As part of our commitment to fixing the game’s issues, we’ve decided to delay the Online mode of Watch Dogs: Legion to early 2021," said the developer. 

"This will allow us to focus on fixing issues with single player, and it will give us more time to test the Online experience to help ensure a smooth launch of the mode."

Ubisoft will release update 2.20 this week. It will add a manual Save Game button on PC and improve the stability on the Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
