Fixing Watch Dogs PC is Ubisoft’s “high priority”

By Dave Cook, Monday, 2 June 2014 08:35 GMT

Watch Dogs PC has launched with a fair share of technical issues that have been causing fans a deal of grief. While Ubisoft has no ETA on when these issues will be resolved, the company has said it’s approaching the problem as a “high priority.”


It follows Ubisoft Montreal’s Sebastien Viard explaining how to avoid some issues on Twitter, and promising that a patch is in development.

Now, Ubisoft has explained on its official UK forum that the problems are being looked into, but that there’s no clear turnaround for fixes.

“We do not have an ETA at present,” wrote UK forum manager Mr_Shade, “though they are working to get this fixed as a high priority.”

“I’m sorry,” he added on calls for an estimated patch date, “without [Ubisoft Montreal] completing their investigations and we have a working fix – and thing I say would only be a guess, so would rather say “no comment” – since I don’t want to mislead anyone either way.”
