Watch_Dogs 2 Title Update 1.17 Detailed, May Be The Last Update

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 months ago
Title update 1.17 for Watch_Dogs 2 aims to eliminate the remaining bugs that have been present in the game, with the focus of the patch being fully on the four-player party mode and co-op. Ubisoft believes that this patch may be all that is needed to leave players with a solid and bug-free game as the developer has stated that they "do not foresee releasing any additional title updates after this patch".
