The French publisher confirmed the release date on Sunday during Ubisoft Forward, its first fully digital conference.
The game is expected to release first for current-gen consoles and PC. It will also be a launch title for next-gen consoles.
CEO Yves Guillemot said last October: “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.”
Microsoft‘s gaming chief, Phil Spencer, also confirmed on Sunday that Watch Dogs Legion will support Xbox Smart Delivery, which lets players buy a game once and play it across Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
Watch Dogs Legion takes place in a near future UK that has become an oppressive surveillance state, where ordinary citizens are preyed upon by a corrupt private military corporation and a powerful crime syndicate.
Players must recruit Londoners to form a resistance movement. The game will support four-player co-op, with progression shared between single-player and online modes.
