You may see some reviews delayed for Watch Dogs 2, and for a very good reason. The “Seamless Multiplayer” functionality was found to be broken only days before the game hit stores, and Ubisoft have sent us a statement regarding this issue:

“During the pre-launch phase of Watch Dogs 2, we were disappointed to discover an issue tied to the seamless multiplayer feature that caused the game to lag and crash periodically. In order to eliminate that issue at launch and for players to enjoy a smooth game play experience, we have decided to wait to launch the seamless multiplayer feature so it would not impact the core gameplay experience.

To be clear, players can fully enjoy the entire single-player experience without any concerns. Additionally, co-op is still fully functional by inviting friends through the game menu. However, the Bounty-Hunter mode and other activities that would occur with other outside players who enter your game will be unavailable until the issue is resolved. We truly appreciate the patience of our player community.

To follow updates on Watch Dogs 2 and follow the status of the seamless multiplayer, please feel free to visit our Watch Dogs 2 Web site at http://watchdogs.ubisoft.com/watchdogs/en-US/news/index.aspx

We’ll post an update as soon as one is available, and keep your eyes right here for Emrah’s upcoming review.
