Watch Dogs 2‘s first content add-on, the T-Bone Content Bundle, has suffered a slight delay for all platforms, with the DLC now due to release on PlayStation 4 next week, December 22, with an Xbox One and PC launch now set for January 24, 2017, Ubisoft has confirmed. Prior to the small setback, the new content had been set to go live on the PlayStation Store tomorrow with a wider release for other platforms expected 30 days after that, due to Sony’s timed exclusivity deal with the publisher.
As for the why and reason, Ubisoft cites the diversion of development resources to the open world title’s multiplayer component, which has suffered from several teething issues, as the culprit for the adjusted release schedule, with the latest patch – 1.06 – aiming to improve it further. As for the T-Bone DLC itself, the titular fan favorite character’s attire, as well as his car-crushing school bus will be included in the package, alongside a new Mayhem co-op challenge and enemy type: the Grenadier.

For those not interested in dropping additional cash on the game, next week will see the beginning of a new, free T-Bone themed Chaos Event that awards in-game currency and special rewards for completing various tasks. New car and bag skins for protagonist Marcus are also up for grabs, so if you’re a sucker for more customization options, you’ll want to take full advantage of the event.
Despite having received a warmer welcome than its predecessor following release last month, Watch Dogs 2 has struggled to convert that positive start into bigger sales numbers, with the sequel having sold significantly less than the original. Ubisoft doesn’t seem particularly concerned though, having said in a statement previously that it’s “incredibly happy with critics’ and players’ very positive reception of Watch Dogs 2, which should bolster support for the long-term success of the game.”
