Ubisoft News: Developer Admits PC Version Of 'The Division' 'Has A Lot Of Issues'

Ubisoft has started to address issues connected with its newest release, "The Division."  According to new reports, the game developer has already started with necessary measures to sanction and ban cheaters from playing the game.

"According to community developer Yanncik Banchereau, once update 1.1 drops, players can report cheating inside the client for the PC version of the game," VG 24/7 reported. "To do this, they will type /report [NAME], which will flag the account once the team manually reviews the complaint."

"Three day suspensions with a second chance will be offered. If a player takes this second chance for granted and cheats again, a permanent ban will be handed out."

Banchereau also noted that these issues are has a rare to zero occurence with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users.  He did however confirm that PC players are the ones at risk of cheating as the platform "has a lot of issues."

Meanwhile, Ubisoft has recently confirmed "Watch Dogs 2." While this is exciting news for fans of the game, reports claimed that the gaming company has a lot in store apart from the mere launch of the sequel.

According to PC Gamer, the new game will support DirectX 12. "Ubi didn't go into detail about how exactly DX12 will be implemented, but hopefully it will at the very least help deliver better out-of-the-box performance than we got from the original Watch Dogs, which suffered from some serious issues with lag and stuttering at release," the report noted.

As of writing, Ubisoft has not yet disclosed any specific release dates for "Watch Dog 2." Rumors are rife, however, that Ubisoft might release the game on its 2016-17 fiscal year.
