Yves revealed the studio is continuing to create their next-generation console games for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. We don’t know just what Ubisoft is working on behind closed doors but Watch Dogs Legion could easily be one of them. Watch Dogs Legion will no doubt release for both current and next-gen consoles after suffering a massive delay in 2019.
The game was expected to launch on 6 March 2020 but Ubisoft needed more time to work on the title. This being after the rocky launch of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The game launched and suffered major negative feedback from critics and fans. Ubisoft decided the studio needed more time to reevaluate its approach to its upcoming titles.
