Ubisoft has further commented on the Uplay loading issue in "Watch Dogs." According to a report from GameSpot on June 4, the company acknowledged that players are having problems in the open-world action-adventure video game. PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One players have been complaining directly to the publisher.

The glitch apparently occurs after the player activate the various rewards from the Uplay service. A representative from Ubisoft disclosed that the development team is isolating the issue in order to find a fix in a future patch. The same individual also suggested that those who are encountering the issue should submit a ticket to the Ubisoft support website.

"Watch Dogs" had to be delayed previously as Ubisoft felt that the video game needed additional polish. Instead of Nov. of last year, the software product came out on May 27 for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Despite the extra development time, the aforementioned Uplay glitch apparently got past the quality assurance process.

"Watch Dogs" is an open-world game, which makes it somewhat difficult to get rid of bugs due to an endless amount of random scenarios that could occur. As a result, the developers may not be able to find a glitch before shipping the product. The bug should be fixed by the time the Wii U version is released, which was recently reconfirmed to come out later this fall season in the North American region.

Ubisoft Montreal is the main development team behind the project with additional support provided by the Paris, Quebec and Reflection internal studios. The new intellectual property ended up selling four million units worldwide across all five current platforms in just four weeks. It is well on its way to matching the expectation of six million copies previously set by Ubisoft.
