XDefiant Servers Plagued With Problems At Launch

After numerous delays and hiccups surrounding its development, Ubisoft’s free-to-play shooter XDefiant is finally available for everyone. Unfortunately, XDefiant’s servers have seemingly been plagued by problems causing players to not be able to play.

Almost immediately after the game went live, players began to take to social media to complain about not being able to get into a match.

“Where TF is everyone,” one user said.

Said another, “Having issues with finding a game…. RIP.”

The problems led to the game’s official Twitter account making a statement on the matter.

“We’re aware that some players are unable to join a game- please bear with us while we look into servers and matchmaking,” the developers said.

Even game head Mark Rubin made a post commenting on the servers.

“Matchmaking servers go boom!” he said. “We are working on it.”

Insider Gaming has reached out to Ubisoft to see if there is any time table for a fix or if there was a specific issue causing players not to be able to connect. Should a response be received, this story will be updated accordingly.

For what it’s worth, however, XDefiant is the second-most popular game being stream on Twitch as of publishing. The only game ahead of it is Grand Theft Auto 5.
