A few days ago, Ubisoft posted a message saying that an update will be coming for Watch Dogs: Legion that aims to fix the corrupted save file issue many users are experiencing. Well a new update arrived recently and fixed several crashing issues, but no fix for the corrupted saves just yet.

The TU2.0 patch was already deployed on consoles for Watch Dogs Legion, but a separate one was released for PC for specific issues related to the platform. Ubisoft is still working on a patch for the corrupted save files, which should arrive today at some point as they said it will be available on November 9th.

For now though, here are the patch notes for the Watch Dogs Legion 2.0 update…

A daily reminder that buying games at launch is a fool's errand these days...


Be patient. Wait for patches and a lower price. :)

Considering all delays which were about quality, I think people would want to crucify CDPR if that happened. Though on bright side, you either get great game or Twitter would get on whole new level of interesting with just how badly... what is the word... ratioed(?) would CDPR get. I totally wouldn't envy that Twitter managing dude.

Corrupt saves? You can just buy boosters to mitigate your progress loss, so it's not a priority apparently.
