Picture this: you’re playing a single-player game with a big focus on a good story and a well-developed game world. You want to open the world map and suddenly… you’ll see ads appear on your screen. Sounds pretty annoying, but apparently it has already happened to several players while playing Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
This was reported on Reddit And the incident didn’t seem to be tied to any specific platform. The player in question was shown an advertisement for the Black Friday sale for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, which he had to close manually in order to be able to open the world map.
Ubisoft has since commented on the incident reacted and everything written off as ‘a technical error’.
“We have been made aware that some players encountered pop-up ads while playing certain Assassin’s Creed titles yesterday. This was the result of a technical error that we addressed as soon as we learned of the issue.”
