  • Yeah can’t say I’m chomping at the bit to play the online side of things but I’ll still check it out to see how it all goes.

  • WDL was suppose to be their redemption for Ghost Breakpoint… including development and launch delays, bugs, slow fixes,average reviews, and a pushed backed DLC of over 3 months. It really isn’t looking good at Ubisoft.

    Are they really ready for a Star Wars game?
