Weve identified connectivity and crash issues in MP game modes after the recent patch release. Were investigating a fix and will give an update as soon as possible.

4/28 Update: Crash/Connectivity Issues (PC Patch going out today, situation should now be resolved on all platforms)

Hey Watch Dogs 2 friends, just wanted to confirm that the patch addressing crash issues in MP modes and getting stuck in Showd0wn mode (plus some other PC-specific issues) is being released today. PS4 and XB1 patch was released Tuesday, and this will bring PC players up to speed.

Thank you all for your patience and support while we worked this issue out. We're really excited to have you back in multiplayer game modes and enjoying the new Showd0wn gameplay, which is available for everyone.

Last note: There is an ongoing outage affecting all Ubisoft services at the moment. If you are receiving server connection error messages, it is related to that. They're working hard on a fix and you can follow @UbisoftSupport on Twitter for the latest updates. If you continue to experience crashes when connecting to MP game modes, or the "stuck in Showd0wn" issue, please let us know right away.

Have fun!

Previous Updates:


4/25 Update: Hey everyone. I wanted to confirm that Title Update 1.14 is now live on PS4 and XB1 (it may not be available in all regions yet, if it's not available for you immediately it will be very soon). This patch should address the vast majority of crash issues in MP modes, and getting stuck in Showd0wn. Thank you very much for your patience and support while we worked this issue out, we can't wait to have you playing Showd0wn, the new multiplayer races, and working your way up the leaderboards for seasonal rewards. We'll continue to monitor and keep a close eye on things.
The PC patch is still under development as there are additional issues that need to be addressed. We are aiming for end of week to release this patch, but I don't have final confirmation and there's a possibility it could take longer. I'll make an update on this as soon as I have one. Thank you.

4/24 Update: We've concluded testing on patches for consoles and we should see them roll out on PS4 and XB1 starting tomorrow and through Wednesday. PC patch will come right after. This should solve the vast majority of issues with the game crashing on MP game modes, and getting stuck in Showd0wn.

4/21 Update: We have a candidate patch for a build that we believe will fix all of these issues. We will be spending the weekend testing the patch extensively, and will hopefully be able to release it mid next week. The PC patch will come shortly after, as there are additional PC fixes. Again, thank you so much for your patience and support. We'll make another update here on Monday.

4/19 Update: We've made good progress and should have a patch to fix both issues by sometime next week. We've identified and found a solution for the crashing when trying to load MP game modes, and we're currently investigating a fix for the Showd0wn bug. While we're trying to fix this issue as soon as possible, we also need time to make sure both fixes are tested thoroughly and do not cause further problems.

Hi nelly75,

Thanks for reporting this. For now, you'll need to roll back your driver but take a look here for more information.

And now it's June 16, 2018, and it's still crashing. We just got the game last night. Just as I'm about to reach the first objective (DedSec hackerspace) and it crashes.

Tried hard resetting and power cycling. Still crashing. Any fix?

2018 and I am also facing the same issue, cant even play the first mission and the game crashes and power off my xbox one console. Just contacted ubi support and was informed that it might be a problem with my console itself. Already contacted microsoft and Watch Dogs 2 is the only game that I have this problem. I need an urgent help for that issue

September 13 2018, and I am having the same issue. I played for several hours yesterday when I first installed the game, and about an hour this morning before it suddenly starts freezing and shutting down the system. I would really like to know if something is being done about this.

Update - after the 3rd freeze/shutdown the game has played fine for over an hour. I don't know why as I didn't change anything (on a side note I noticed that when the system shut down after the game froze I couldn't restart it with the controller like I normally do, I had to push the power button to get it to come back on).

Actually it seems to have cleared up on it's own, the last 3 days I have played several hours a day with no problems. Thanks for the advice however.
