The Crew had quite the notorious bug since it launched back in December. Ubisoft has finally gotten around to fixing it in the upcoming patch.

The Crew had its share of online issues on launch, but perhaps the most notable one was that servers would randomly erase player stats. Unthinkable for any racing game to suffer, let alone one built around it.

A new patch that’s currently due February 12 should fix this issue once and for all. There is one caveat though, any previous missing stats won’t be restored, instead, future stats will be retained as they should have been.

Take a look at the rest of the patch notes below.
