Ubisoft seeing 'significant improvement' in Watch Dogs online services
Though Watch Dogs made its much anticipated launch this week, the release hasn't gone as Ubisoft probably would've hoped. Severe server load issues have hindered many of the games online experience which, according to Ubisoft, is in the process of being fixed. Unfortunately, it will still take some time as the teams are working to stabilize the servers. Going back to yesterday, here's the progress of Watch Dogs' online status.

It's probably not the magical fix you were hoping for, but at least they are making progress. If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, this is why we're not ready to move to an all digital future.
