Hopefully it is all done soon.
Ubisoft will be adding another online mode – a ‘minor’ one – to Watch Dogs 2, but only after the performance and stability issues that have plagued the other online modes in the game since launch are fixed. Speaking to the community, community manager Chase Straight confirmed that there is an online mode that Ubisoft are currently holding back.
“There is one remaining minor feature, ‘neutral encounters’, that will only be activated once we’re fully comfortable with the performance of the core seamless online experience. This is the feature where you can randomly encounter other players on the street in your world as you explore,” he said.
But a new online mode isn’t all that Ubisoft is working on- it should be clear by now, but Ubisoft is determined to iron out the stability problems the game is suffering from. “We’ll be monitoring and balancing the online game modes. Taking into account feedback we collect online, and also the in-game data,” Straight said. “We’ll be making some other tweaks to the online gameplay as well.”
Hopefully all of this is true- Watch Dogs 2 is a great game, and definitely a better one than the original, only done in by these minor problems. Ubisoft would do well to fix it.
