Ubisoft to End Watch Dogs: Legion Post-Launch Support

Ubisoft is officially pulling the plug on Watch Dogs: Legion, their open-world action/adventure game that originally launched in October 2020. The developers recently announced that update 5.6 would be the game’s last, ending with Season 5: Stripes before closing down all post-launch support.

Ubisoft made the announcement recently that Watch Dogs: Legion will cease to receive any post-launch updates or support following update 5.6, which introduced a few bug fixes and improvements for the Spiderbot Arena, UI and visuals. The game’s fourth season recently concluded, but fans can still look forward to playing Season 5: Stripes.

Following update 5.6 and the closure of post-launch support for Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft will cycle between Season 3 and 5, giving players the opportunity to grab any rewards they might have missed out on. That will mark the end of the game’s post-launch support, though Ubisoft has thanked fans for its growth:

“The game has grown by leaps and bounds, with a ton of content to explore, from a sprawling near future city to an action-packed Online Mode. We couldn’t be prouder of the game we’ve created, and we appreciate all of you who’ve joined us on this journey in London over the year.”

Watch Dogs: Legion ending post-launch support shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the game received a somewhat divisive reception upon launch. Furthermore, it’s also largely a single-player experience so the potential for expanding and prolonging the game beyond a year or two would probably overstay its welcome.

That said, Ubisoft continues to support all post-launch content for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which also launched in late 2020 though received a better overall reception from critics and fans.

Watch Dogs: Legion is now available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
