Going forward, the company shifting from a four week title update release cycle to a five week one “to allow for more thorough testing and development.” This is part of the reason the next title update, Wrath of the Druids, from April 27th to May 13th.
“Our community is at the heart of everything we do, and we always strive to provide you with great experiences,” Ubisoft wrote. “That said, we recognize that some of our recent title updates may not have met your expectations or been up to our standards. We have made several changes to production pipelines and tools so that we can deliver more robust updates.”
To helps users understand the reasoning behind the change, Ubisoft also detailed the differences between a title update and a hotfix, and shared its title update roadmap “for the foreseeable future,” which covers updates planned through late spring. After launching Wrath of the Druids, the next updates will be title update 1.2.2 and the free mastery challenge game mode. Ubisoft also offered timelines for fixing several know issues and explained “why it has taken so much time to address them.”
