Ubisoft’s upcoming titles have a lot of burden on their shoulders

Ubisoft’s latest title Watch Dogs Legion released on October 29, 2020. Following the success of the first two Watch Dogs games, fans had high expectations from Legion. The developers had also announced that the game would have a ‘play as anyone’ feature, and it certainly aggravated the hype.

However, the response to the game since its release has not been satisfactory. Most of the new players love the game, but the veterans feel it could have been better. Ubisoft has tried to incorporate a lot of features in a single game, but it seems the company failed to do so. The game also owes some of its negative reviews to its long loading time on the PS4.
