[Update]: The server issues have been cleared up as of 1:45 p.m. There have been no indications of any further attacks or server hiccups at this time.
[Original Story]: It’s been a rough morning for Ubisoft servers, as folks trying to login to Rainbow Six Siege, Ghost Recon Wildlands, For Honor and other popular online titles haven’t had a very high success rate. After initially announcing some general server issues close to 10 a.m., Ubisoft announced officially via Twitter that they are monitoring a DDoS attack.
We’re currently monitoring a DDoS attack, which may impact latency or connections to our games. Updates here>> https://t.co/0NGb3wmYHg

It doesn’t appear that this is related to last night’s Ubisoft server issues, but it appears this DDoS attack has no clear end in sight. The official Ubisoft forums state that they are “taking steps to mitigate this issue,” but that people will experience problems connecting to their games and server latency when they do connect.
The forums also confirmt hat this is impacting Rainbow Six siege, Steep, For Honor, Ghost Recon Wildlands and the Uplay PC client as a whole.
GameRevolution will update this story as more details become available.
