Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion will be coming to Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5 following the game’s recent delay.
With the highly-anticipated game being pushed out of its March, 2020 release date and into the 2021 fiscal year, Ubisoft has confirmed that the title is being developed for a cross-generational experience.
Revealed through the company’s latest earnings call, the news is far from surprising. Ubisoft has a history with cross-gen releases: the original Watch Dogs saw release on multiple platforms. With Legion‘s ambitious technical design, it makes sense for the title to arrive on more powerful consoles, especially those that take advantage of ray-tracing.
The announcement of Legion’s cross-gen development wasn’t the only title Ubisoft talked about. Every one of the company’s recently delayed games will be making their way to Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5: Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and, presumably, Skull and Bones.
“On the five titles yes, they will be on this generation and the next generation of consoles and they will take full advantage of all the new features that are coming with the machines, which are actually going to be extremely interesting for players,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed.
““You will be able to download new content a lot faster, players will experience a better framerate… there are lots of very good elements that will come with those new machines…“What is important is when you come early on the next generation of consoles, you can sell your games for a long time. We are very happy to be close to the launch of those consoles, because it’s going to benefit all of the games that we will launch.”
