During a recent “ask me anything” session on Reddit, Watch Dogs: Legion live producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan said Ubisoft is working to add a higher framing option to the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S.
“60 frames per second for next generation consoles is under development and we will announce the exact release dates with our future [title updates], ”Thillainathan told fans earlier today, a detail that was eventually shared by the game’s official Twitter account.
Unlike many of his contemporaries, Watch Dogs: Legion did not start with a mode that focused on framerate instead of graphical fidelity. Eurogamer reported at the time that configuration files in the PC version indicated that 60 frames per second was once in the cards for the next generation consoles, despite the fact that they did not come to the final releases for unknown reasons.
The last Watch Dogs: Legion road map, as covers updates from late April to August 2021, it does not mention any framerate patch, so players may have to wait until the fall or later for the sweet, buttery-smooth gameplay. Maybe they will surprise us.
