Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Montreal, has apologised for the development issues that have plagued the recently released Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Following on from the news yesterday that a new patch, dubbed as “Patch 3” by Ubisoft, will be heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this week, the CEO said they are “committed to delivering further fixes for other issues.”
“Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues,” he said. “I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.”
According to a blog post on the Assassin’s Creed official website, Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC will be offered to everyone who purchased Unity on PS4, Xbox One and PC for free. The DLC has no release date confirmed at this moment in time, but Ubisoft has said that the add-on will be available for download via the Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation Store, Uplay and Steam.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft is allowing Season Pass owners the opportunity to select one title to download as part of their apology, with a range of games to choose from: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Rayman Legends and Just Dance 2015.
Mallat, however, confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Season Pass has now been discontinued, with no further details added as to why the company has made this decision.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. For more details on this year’s installment, you can check out Gamer Headlines’ review of the title.
