Ubisoft Account’s 2-step Verification Issue Comes To Light

Ubisoft Account 2-step Verification Issue

With over $2.5 billion in gaming revenue as of 2021, it’s safe to say that Ubisoft is one of the biggest video game companies in the world. Founded in 1986 in Montreuil, Ile-de-France, France, this studio has released tons of amazing video games over the years. Some of its most popular games are Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor, and Wildlands. Unlike before, Ubisoft has an app (Ubisoft Connect) that enables players to access any of its titles in a single place. For you to launch a game, you need to log into Ubisoft Connect as well as the platform on which you purchased the game. Recently, Ubisoft also made it compulsory for players to use 2FA to play ranked games in Rainbow Six Siege. Unfortunately, users are now experiencing an issue while performing the Ubisoft account 2-step verification process.
