Ubisoft has delayed the PC release of online mode for Watch Dogs: Legion.
News of the delay on PC was announced via the official Watch Dogs: Legion Twitter account.
The reason for the delay is an issue has been identified that can cause the game to crash for players with certain GPUs. The team is working on fixing the issue as quickly as possible, and in the meantime made the decision to delay the online modes until said issue is fixed.
According to the notice, some online modes will also be delayed on consoles, but the majority are still planned for release on March 9.
This is particularly the case with the Tactical OP, in which there is also a crashing issue. This mode will instead be released on March 23.
PlayStation systems will also have limited in-game chat text at launch. A fix is in the works and will also be released on March 23.
