Ubisoft is looking into reports of multiplayer connectivity issues for the recently released open-world game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the developer said on Twitter today.

"We've seen reports about connection issues and [are] actively investigating this with members of the community and internally," Ubisoft said.

It is unclear which platforms are being affected by the connectivity issues. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U.

Though it remains to be seen when Ubisoft will deliver a patch to fix the reported connectivity issues, the developer added that a new title update featuring around 275 general gameplay fixes is currently with Microsoft and Sony now for certification.

The update will bring changes to Wolfpack balancing and tweaks for scoring, as well as fixes for crashes and exploits, among other things. A release date for this patch was not announced.

Versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 were released yesterday, ahead of both next-generation platforms' public release dates.
