Ubisoft ended up delaying Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s major performance fixing patch last night as the publisher has suddenly decided that “Rigorous quality control is of paramount importance”. It seems that the development team wasn’t quite hitting the performance target it was hoping for with the new patch and is now in the process of ‘refurbishing’ the Paris map.
We don’t know exactly what the developer means by refurbishing the map but hopefully it won’t cause any more problems. In a blog post, Ubisoft wrote that: “Rigorous quality control is of paramount importance to us, and your feedback over these past weeks has indicated that it is important to you as well”.
The live blog update then goes on to say that: “We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map and that will take a few more days to hit the high level of quality our players deserve.”
Hopefully the massive backlash Ubisoft has received this year will be a wake up call- the company needs to treat its games better, it needs to treat gamers better and it needs to start listening to feedback and making changes.

KitGuru Says: Ubisoft needs to look back at this year and make some serious changes. It will take some effort, but hopefully the company is willing to take on feedback and earn back a decent reputation. Do you guys think Ubisoft could turn things around next year? Will it take longer for gamers to trust the company again?
