Watch Dogs 2 was a solid successor to the foundation that it’s much maligned predecessor built. However, there’s no question that the rollout of its “seamless” online modes left much to be desired.
Days of the mode being disabled due to instability only to finally be turned on in the past few weeks seems to have put a stress on the team that has lead them to the decision today to delay the release of the game’s first DLC pack, the T-Bone content Bundle, from December 13 (for PS4 users) to December 22. Xbox One and PC users will have to wait an additional moth until January 24 to get their hands on the additional content.
In their blog post Ubisoft said, “this and previous patches were an important step towards stabilizing Watch Dogs 2’s seamless multiplayer functionality, and other core online features, before releasing any new multiplayer content. Since these updates required additional development resources, we’ve made the decision to adjust our release schedule for that new content.”
We called Watch Dogs 2, “one of the best games of 2016,” in our review and with it’s online issue resolved main character Marcus’ quest to take over San Francisco is back on track.
