There seems to be some big problems over at Ubisoft, as server issues leads to degradation of all of Ubisoft’s services.
These issues have impacted Ubisoft’s websites, games, Uplay, account management, and more. Apparently, these issues have been known for a while, but have since reached boiling point.
The EU support site refers to these problems as “service degradation”, whereas other Ubisoft sites just state that it’s due to maintenance. In any case, here’s a statement from the EU Support site.
We are currently experiencing degradation on all Ubisoft Services.
Players may have trouble connecting to the Ubisoft websites, the account management website, Uplay PC and online features of games.
We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while this issue is being investigated.
Please keep an eye on our support website. We will remove this message once the issue is resolved.
Hopefully these problems are addressed as soon as possible. Ubisoft state in the above message that they will remove this statement when the issues have been resolved. Stay tuned.
