One of the year’s biggest launches was For Honor from Ubisoft. It received a fair bit of praise for its intuitive combat and impressive graphics. Commercially, it was a huge success, going on to become one of 2017’s best-selling games thus far. Unfortunately however, it was not to last and the active player base has tanked since launch.
In a post today on UbiBlog, Ubisoft outlined their roadmap of changes that will be coming in the next couple of season. Out of everything announced however, one change in particular stands out: For Honor is getting dedicated servers.
While this is definitely a fantastic addition, it does raise some questions. If Ubisoft had the resources, why not make sure these stable servers were available at launch? Only time will tell whether these changes are enough to bring players back to For Honor or not. In the meanwhile, if you’ve been thinking about picking it up, be sure to check out our review.
