watch dogs

We reported a couple of days back that many Watch Dogs players on PC were facing issues with uPlay. Apparently this was caused by the rush of players who jumped to get their hands on the title as soon as it went live. That wouldn’t be an outrageous assumption as Watch Dogs sold more copies in its first 24 hours than any game Ubisoft has ever released. Unfortunately it looks like Watch Dogs uPlay issues are present on PS4 and Xbox One too.

An Xbox Live status alert for Xbox One and Xbox 360 was issued by Microsoft today which revealed that the commotion is being caused by Ubisoft’s uPlay. It is also affecting other titles like Trials Fusion, Child of Light and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

There are also reports of Trials Fusion and Trials Frontier facing issues with online leaderboards on iOS, this issue was first noticed when Watch Dogs was released earlier this week.

Another report claims that Watch Dogs players are also having problems connecting to uPlay through a PlayStation 4. Issues include long waiting times for free roam mode as well as intermittent connectivity. Players can choose to skip online connectivity and play the game offline but that means they’ll miss out on some of the title’s features.

Through its official support Twitter account Ubisoft says that its continuing to see improvement in its online services, but acknowledges that “intermittent issues remain.” Ubisoft says that its working to resolve this soon.
