Ubisoft has announced that the company will not update Watch Dogs: Legion, marking the end of post-launch support for this RPG just one and three months after its release on October 29, 2020.
In a fan announcement posted on the Ubisoft website, the Watch Dogs: Legion development team reviews the game’s journey and post-launch content before saying goodbye that update 5.6 is the final update for Watch Dogs: Legion. . The developers also thanked the fans for their commitment: “We love to see your content and passion.”
The fifth season of Watch Dogs: Legion online mode began on January 22, and the game will go on hiatus after the season ends. In-game content will rotate, switching between seasons 3-5 and repeating indefinitely. Ubisoft says that players can get “new rewards and re-spins” in online mode and have a chance to unlock content they missed out on in the past. That includes items like Mr. Aiden Pearce’s coat or Jackson’s costume.
The most recent update for Watch Dogs: Legion was 5.6, released on September 14, 2021, following the previous August update. Although a long period without new content has been announced before the end of Watch Dogs: Legion, but the news of the complete cessation of updates still surprises and will surely disappoint fans, especially since many of the games that came out after Watch Dogs : Legion are still going and continue to be supported by Ubisoft like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
