Players of different video games from Ubisoft experienced server connection issues over the weekend across different gaming platforms.
According to a Gamespot report, seven games from developer Ubisoft faced connection issues, which led to intermittent disconnections and linger queuing times for multiplayer modes. Players were unable to access forums, online services, and websites. By Sunday morning, however, the server issues have all been resolved, the report noted.
The seven games affected were "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," "Rainbow Six: Siege," "AirMech Arena," "Steep," "The Crew," "Watch Dogs 2," and "Trials Fusion." Ubisoft, for their part, acknowledged the issues and released a statement saying they are on top of the matter.
"Hello everyone! We are aware of online services degradation impacting multiple games on the following platform(s): PS4, XB1, XB360, PC. Our technical team is investigating and working on resolving this as quickly as possible," wrote the company in the Ubisoft Forums.
The Gamespot report noted, however, that the video game developer has yet to confirm the root cause of the server connection issues. It is commendable of Ubisoft to address the problem quickly, as it looks to introduce more titles this year.
Last November, Twinfinite reported that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that fans can expect more Ubisoft games on the Nintendo Switch. "We will have some Switch games next year," said the Ubisoft boss, without mentioning any titles.
Guillemot also expressed his happiness with the way Nintendo's flagship console has been faring in the market. During the third quarter of 2017, Ubisoft's titles for the Switch accounted for 19 percent of console's total game sales. Some of the developer's key Switch titles include "Rayman Legends," "Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle," and "Just Dance 2017."
In addition, Ubisoft has also launched other titles like "Monopoly" and "Just Dance 2018," while others were already confirmed to be in the pipeline like "Starlink: Battle for Atlas." It will be interesting to see if Ubisoft's partnership with Nintendo will continue to blossom through the rest of the year.
