Posted on May 30, 2014, Stew Shearer Watch Dogs Players Locked Out of Game Saves by Uplay Bug
A new bug has surfaced locking players out of their Watch Dogs saved games.
“I select continue to play my save [and] the loading bar gets stuck at about 90 percent,” described one poster. “No matter how long I wait it won’t load.”
This player’s experience was echoed by countless other people playing on a variety of consoles and on PC. The issue likewise seems to be occurring for both physical and digital copies of the game. Many have also noted that their troubles began after they attempted to purchase or access content from Ubisoft’s Uplay store. Thus far the only way to circumvent the issue has been to start a completely new game. This, understandably, is not a happy prospect for many players, many of whom have invested a considerable amount of time in the game.
We’ve reached out to Ubisoft to see if there’s any official word on a solution.
