Watch Dogs Legion is the third iteration in the series which was expected to be launched in the month of March this year. The pandemic situation delayed the launch of almost every game and movie, with Legion being no different. Being a AAA title from Ubisoft, the developers have decided to go big.
The latest information is that the game is set to launch alongside PS5 and Xbox Series X console launches. Both the next generation consoles are expected to get launched by December 2020 and with an optimistic approach, most believe that the current issue will be over by the time. The new generation consoles are excessively filled with the best hardware specifications and are expected to much more expensive than ever, possibly at $600 or somewhere around the numbers.
Speaking to the New York Times, CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot commented that both Sony and Microsoft are inevitable in this process. They have provided them with developer kits for their new consoles. It allows them to optimize the game for a much better performance because they were originally made for the PS4 and the Xbox One consoles. These platforms are kind of outdated at this point and may hardly deliver the visual prowess that a new launch could offer.
However, as originally planned, the game will launch on almost all platforms including multiple consoles and PC. Xbox Series X and PS5 are quite powerful, giving a tough competition for PC gamers for the first time in many years. It would be interesting to see how Watch Dogs Legion run on different platforms and the game, if well-optimized will have a great run on all platforms.
Legion is said to be a cross-play title so that players on both platforms can enjoy the multiplayer version with one another. Console gamers would boycott PC gamers at any point which was evident when they skipped Call of Duty Warzone because of too many cheaters on PC. Eradicating these issues would help make cross-play more feasible and fair for gamers.
