Open world co-op game Ghost Recon Wildlands is experiencing major server problems, rendering its online features unavailable for many.
Ghost Recon Wildlands launched in 2017 to a somewhat mixed reaction, but the game has earned praise for its online co-op features. Even though the game is five years old at this point, new players are discovering Ghost Recon Wildlands for the first time thanks to its addition to the Xbox Game Pass lineup. Unfortunately, new and longtime players alike are currently unable to enjoy Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ online co-op.
Ghost Recon Wildlands has been suffering from online connectivity issues for days now, with no end in sight. Some players have been able to start online co-op sessions, but it seems many others have been completely unable to play Ghost Recon Wildlands online co-op. Ubisoft first acknowledged the problems with Ghost Recon Wildlands online co-op on August 4, but it was unable to provide a timetable for when the problems would be fixed.
Ghost Recon Wildlands server issues are still plaguing the game at the time of this writing. A fan recently took to Twitter to ask Ubisoft for an update on the Ghost Recon Wildlands server issues, but Ubisoft responded by saying it does not have an estimate for when the problem will be fixed. Upset Ghost Recon fans and Xbox Game Pass subscribers have taken to social media to vent their frustrations.
Ghost Recon Wildlands Server Status
Ghost Recon Wildlands was at the forefront of the new Xbox Game Pass games for August 2022, serving as the latest Ubisoft-published title to be added to Microsoft’s gaming subscription service. It was preceded by some other Ubisoft heavy hitters, like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Watch Dogs 2, and there are plans to bring even more Ubisoft games to Xbox Game Pass in the future. Hopefully future Ubisoft Xbox Game Pass games are able to avoid the online connectivity issues Ghost Recon Wildlands is experiencing.
It’s unclear what could be causing it Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ online connectivity problems. Once Ubisoft pinpoints the problem and resolves it, it’s unlikely that it will reveal the issue. This is standard practice for video game companies and tech companies in general whenever there are service outages or technical problems of this nature. For example, whenever Xbox Live goes down or PlayStation Network is inaccessible, the companies simply announce when the services have been restored and very rarely, if ever, provide any kind of explanation as to what caused the problems.
Ghost Recon fans can try playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint while they wait for the Wildlands servers to be restored, although it should be noted that Breakpoint reviews were significantly more negative than Wildlands.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is available for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
