Since the Vikendi update in January, many of our players have been experiencing performance issues. As we previously stated on February 15, our dev team has been focusing on fixing these issues, with a tentative update scheduled for February 28.
Sadly, due to technical issues which would result in further harm to game stability, we made the difficult decision to push back the patch date to March 5.
Also, some Xbox players reported that they were being matched to servers outside of their region, causing high pings, network lag, desync, and instances of rubberbanding. This was resolved with a server-side patch on February 27 and players will now be matched into their local region, unless the matchmaking pool of the region is too small. Please let us know if this issue persists, we will be keeping an eye out for reports regarding this issue.
We know that many of you have been waiting for this update to hit the live servers, and we’re sorry to have let you down. We’re working our hardest to resolve the technical issues and deliver a stable update next week.
To thank you for sticking with us through all of these issues we are also preparing a token of our appreciation. We will give you more information on this and how it will be distributed as we get closer to March 5.
Thank you all for your patience.
