Ubisoft CEO Speaks Out Regarding Assassin’s Creed Unity

In a new statement released today on Ubisoft’s website, the company’s CEO, Yannis Mallat, commented on the criticisms given after the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity. In this statement, Mallat apologized that the game was marred by bugs and glitches that prevented Unity from reaching its full potential. To remedy this setback, the CEO emphasized that the team at Ubisoft were hard at work at fixing the issues reported by players, and will be releasing the third patch, which will fix several aspects of the game’s performance, stability, gameplay, connectivity, and more. You can find the patch notes here. Mallat also mentioned that the game’s first DLC pack “Dead Kings” will be free to download for all players this holiday season. Players who hold a Season Pass, and thus have already paid for the “Dead Kings” DLC, will also be given a free Ubisoft game of their choice in compensation for the error.

“In addition to the latest patch and this offer, we are committed to delivering further fixes for other issues you’ve raised. In the meantime, please keep your feedback coming — it has been both humbling and incredibly helpful as we continue working hard to improve the overall quality of the game. We are hopeful that with these forthcoming updates, everyone will be able to truly enjoy their Assassin’s Creed Unity experience. “

Assassin’s Creed Unity has suffered from many issues since its release on November 11th: odd glitches, bugs, and overall poor performance have combined to earn the title less then stellar reviews from critics and fans alike. On top of this, issues regarding the distribution of review copies of Unity have also earned Ubisoft bad press and has damaged the trust that the gaming community once had for the triple-A developer and publisher. The future of the both the Assassin’s Creed series and Ubisoft is unclear at this point, but it is more than likely that it will take some time and a good amount of hard work for both the series and its publisher to earn back the good will they once had with gamers.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
