Watch Dogs Legion is the next installment in the Watch Dogs franchise by Ubisoft and is one of the highly anticipated games of 2020.

The Watch Dogs got off to a relatively rocky start with the first game back in 2014. Ubisoft received a lot of flak for a significant graphical downgrade from their E3 Reveal to the retail version of the game.

The game received a mixed response from the critics and the fans, alike. The game, however, showed potential, which Ubisoft capitalized on with Watch Dogs 2.

They ditched the self-serious and grim narrative for a lighter, more colorful approach that ultimately got a better reception from fans.

Watch Dogs 2 was one of the most underrated games of 2016 and was an entertaining open-world game with interesting mechanics around hacking.

Watch Dogs Legion: When is the game coming out?

Ubisoft came back to the Watch Dogs franchise with a reveal trailer in 2019 for Watch Dogs Legion. The game showcased a post-brexit London setting with impressive new tech and a brand-new mechanics.

The game will allow the players to take control of any NPC, even a grandma, as showcased in the trailer. The fans are yet to see how exactly this will play out, and whether Ubisoft can deliver on the promise of playing as a NPC in the game world.

Watch Dogs Legion was slated for a March 6 2020 release dated, which has since been delayed. Reportedly, Ubisoft chose to delay the release after the disappointing sales of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

According to Ubisoft, they will be releasing 5 AAA games before April 2021, one of which is Watch Dogs Legion.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, further delays are most likely to happen. We may get to witness the next Watch Dogs a little later this year, or in early 2021.
