Watch Dogs: Legion online mode released on March 9th of this year for all major consoles and Stadia. The PC version has been delayed indefinitely after an issue was found to crash the game for players with certain GPUs.
It is the second delay for the online mode that was originally due out in late 2020. The base game released in October 2020 and currently sits at a 76 on Metacritic (Xbox One version).
Legion is not the first major AAA franchise to take advantage of cross-generational play, with titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Borderlands 3 using the welcomed feature to massive success.
As for cross-play, this has now become stable in most multiplayer titles.
