Ubisoft issues statement on Assassin’s Creed Unity, apologizes
Ubisoft released a statement regarding the buggy launch of Assassin’s Creed Unity today. They had this to say about the game:
Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.
We’ve been working hard to fix the problems players are reporting, and the patches we have released so far have resolved many of them. Today, we’re releasing our third patch, which fixes a variety of specific issues related to the game’s stability and performance, matchmaking and connectivity, gameplay and menus. You can find the release notes on that patch here: Patch 3 Notes
Good to see the publisher taking responsibility for their actions on this one. Its disappointing to see it go down this way but at least they’re trying to rectify it.
You’ve got to wonder how much longer publishers can get away with releasing buggy, broken games and not pay the price post-launch? Battlefield 4 largely got away with it despite negative fan feedback in 2013. Thankfully Ubi is being more active about restoring the faith of their scorned fans than EA was with BF4 in 2013.
