XDefiant Preview Ubisoft

XDefiant Release Date “Coming Soon” Says Producer

Ubisoft has just wrapped up its latest server test for XDefiant and the studio is confident the game’s release date is coming soon. According to Mark Rubin, the XDefiant Server Test Session went quite well across all platforms but the test did showcase some issues the team need to still iron out.

Rubin shared some information on the biggest issues alongside a few technical changes the team are looking into. One major problem that the community brought up during the test was matchmaking. Users complained about high ping rates during certain matches.

According to Rubin, this was an issue that was spotted during the Server Test Session and fixed during the last day of the test. However, some gamers are still questioning XDefiant’s SBMM and whether or not the game will ship with it enabled.

At the moment, we don’t know when Ubisoft plans on launching XDefiant. Rubin says the tuning is quite straightforward and by the sound of things, won’t take too long. However, Ubisoft has said this before. The studio originally planned on launching XDefiant before the end of March this year. That didn’t happen.

Fans have voiced their concerns about the ongoing delays in the past. Many of them accuse Ubisoft of posting game updates and “coming soon” information blasts but none contain useful information regarding the launch.

XDefiant’s development was also hit with various speed bumps in the past when the game failed its console certification in late 2023. Reports claimed that Ubisoft was also undergoing an identity crisis with the game. Executives at the studio were forcing developers to make XDefiant “more like COD”. This has also resulted in various changes to the game and multiple delays.
