Ubisoft working to resolve connection issues related to DDoS attacks

Ubisoft is currently experiencing DDoS attacks on its servers.

Connectivity issues with all Ubisoft games have plagued players since Thursday, July 12.

PlayStation 4 users started experiencing issues last week, and after a few hours, Ubisoft got a handle on things.

When July 14 rolled around, matchmaking and connectivity issues were once again reported across all games and platforms. Ubisoft would no sooner get things up and running again before the issue returned.

Today Ubisoft reported it was investigating a DDoS attack on its servers. It’s unknown if the server and latency issues that continuously affected Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, Ghost Recon Wildlands and Steep over the last few were due to the DDoS attacks.

Ubisoft never specified over the weekend if a DDoS attack was culprit, but server issues seemed to start around the same time bans were handed out to Rainbow Six Siege players. Of course we have no clue if that’s the case, but it does seem rather coincidental.

Anyway, Ubisoft is working to stop the attacks mentioned today and will hopefully straighten things out soon.
