Watch Dogs Legion Update 2.30 does not fix Xbox Series X|S save issues

A fresh update has been pushed out for Watch Dogs Legion on all platforms, fixing plenty of crashes, bugs and issues through the game, but one frustrating issue remains for players on Xbox Series X|S.

The issue is a real game-breaker, with the game auto-save function simply not working, meaning that any progression is lost if you ever close the game and reopen it. When Watch Dogs Legion was a game for which Quick Resume was disabled, that means if you ever wanted to play something else, you’d lose your progress.

Ubisoft acknowledged the issue in November, saying that they hoped to have it fixed in early December, but it’s still a real sore point for those affected, who might have owned the game for over a month now.

There is some good news though, as the dev team have now identified the underlying issue and are working on an additional update to fix this.

Aside from that, though? Well, let’s dive into the patch notes.
