Here is how I got it to work after dozens of attempts using various ideas
Uninstall Uplay (delete the Uplay folder as well). Install the latest Uplay
Uplay login screen make sure the Always run offline is UNCHECKED (This fixed the never ending name and password error for me)
After you get into Uplay goto you Account Settings and under Networks uncheck Cloud Sync and Overlay then Enable Always Start Uplay in Offline Mode
Go into Steam and run the game.
To start a new game and this is the weird part. Someone suggested to keep trying when it starts to load then dumps you back to the Menu.
It too 6 times but the game finally loaded. It also it took 3 -4 times to get into a Continue Game.
So far that seems to do the trick
