Ubisoft: It’s ‘Good News’ That Watch Dogs Legion & Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Release in Same Quarter
The release schedule can sometimes be conflicting: that’s why Ubisoft has applauded that Watch Dogs Legion and Cyberpunk 2077 do not coincide in their release. While Legion will launch on March 6, the RPG of CD Projekt RED will launch on April 16.
If both games were published in the same quarter, they would be competing with each other. A situation that Ubisoft is glad to have avoided.
During the Ubisoft financial meeting, the company executives were asked if they were confident about Legion’s departure date, considering how close Cyberpunk 2077 was located.
However, Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to release on April 16, 2020, which positions it outside of the fourth quarter window in which Ubisoft will post Watch Dogs Legion. The financial director, Frédérik Duguet, responded that it is “good news that Cyberpunk is not in the quarter.”
The release date of Watch Dogs Legion is currently scheduled for March 6, 2020, just under a month before Cyberpunk 2077. Gods and Monsters also gets rid of competing directly with the CD Projekt RED game, since it will release on February 25.
However, Legion will compete with the expected Final Fantasy VII Remake, which Square Enix will launch on March 3, 2020. Today, we have also learned that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Quarantine will debut in early 2020, although a specific launch date has not been provided.
And it is that early next year will be a very busy moment in the launch schedule: Ori and the Will of the Wisps will arrive in February; Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is also scheduled to be released in March, while Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Trials of Mana would also arrive in early 2020, along with Animal Crossing for Switch which, in turn, would be released on March 20.
