The publisher makes up for the bad delivery of Assassin's Creed: Unity.
In a welcome move, publishing powerhouse Ubisoft has stepped forward to publicly announce the company's apologetic stance about the delivery state for Assassin's Creed: Unity. They did more than just offer vapid responses to the masses—there's a gift everyone will receive to bring more people on the Unity bandwagon even after the barrage of bug fixes. CEO of Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto, Yanis Mallat, commented recently on the Ubisoft site:
"To show our appreciation for your continued support, we're making the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC free for everyone. For Season Pass holders we will also offer the choice of one additional game from a selection of Ubisoft titles for free.
In addition to the latest patch and this offer, we are committed to delivering further fixes for other issues you've raised. In the meantime, please keep your feedback coming - it has been both humbling and incredibly helpful as we continue working hard to improve the overall quality of the game. We are hopeful that with these forthcoming updates, everyone will be able to truly enjoy their Assassin's Creed Unity experience."
It seems like the negative outlook for a lot of big-name publishers (cougheacough) is starting to turn toward a positive light. EA rolled out its Great Game Guarantee since word-of-mouth has spread about how unforgiving the company can be. Plus, with competition from smaller games, there could be major changes in the gaming gene pool and we're anxious to see what mutations might appear naturally. Forgive the stretched metaphor.
