Multiple Ubisoft Games Having Server Issues On PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC (Updated)
Online services are down.
Update: The server issues have been resolved. The original story is below.
If you're looking to hop online with Rainbow Six: Siege or Ghost Recon: Wildlands tonight, you might not be able to. These two titles, and several other Ubisoft games, are currently facing connection issues on multiple platforms.
Ubisoft sent a message to its followers on Twitter confirming it is aware of the issues, and noted that it is working to resolve them.
We are aware of server issues impacting multiple games. Our technical team is investigating and working on resolving this as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and we will continue to update this thread as new information becomes available: https://t.co/myd5dDcFLh— Ubisoft Support (@UbisoftSupport) January 6, 2018
Expect intermittent disconnections and longer queue waits for multiplayer, and don't expect to be able to reach other online services, forums, and websites. Seven different Ubisoft games on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox 360 are being affected at the time of publication.
The following titles are currently facing connection issues:
Tonight's connection issues seem to be following a recent string of server issues for Ubisoft titles. On January 4, it seems a similar issue occurred to several titles, including Rainbow Six: Siege, on Xbox One.
Ubisoft has not confirmed what the root cause of these issues are, but these titles are far from the only ones being impacted today. Fortnite and Fortnite Battle Royale are also facing service issues, but only after updates addressing Intel's Meltdown vulnerabilities.
Ubisoft's latest update at 8:30 PM EDT stated that the support team is still working to resolve tonight's connection issues. More updates and information on the situation is available in a forum post here.
