Assassin's Creed Mirage players have been seeing in-game Black Friday pop-ups, and Ubisoft has said that it is the result of a technical issue.
Players complained online about the pop-ups, which advertised other Assassin's Creed games – currently on sale as part of Black Friday. The adverts would reportedly appear on pause screens and when accessing the map.
In a statement sent to Eurogamer, Ubisoft said:
“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.”
That's a pretty remarkable error.
Assassin's Creed Mirage came out in October, and it was something of a return to the series' more stealthy origins. Check out our review of the game here. Rich said:
“In paring things back and zoning in on what really makes Assassin's Creed special, Mirage emerges as one of the most pure and enjoyable entries in the series for a while.”
