Assassin's Creed Unity multiplayer or co-op not working on Xbox consoles, issue acknowledged

Published by Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Unity is the eighth installment in the franchise. Released in 2014, the game explores a fictional history exploring the struggle between Assassins and Templars.

The main storyline is set in Paris and lets players witness the French revolution. It also features a co-op multiplayer game mode that lets up to four players play together and complete missions.


While critics have praised the title for its visuals and various customization options, many said they experienced numerous graphical glitches and bugs.

And now, according to recent reports, many Assassin’s Creed Unity players are unable to play multiplayer co-op mode on Xbox (1,2,3,4,5).

Some say they have already restarted their game and checked their internet connection but the issue persists. Here are some reports from Assassin’s Creed Unity players who say the multiplayer co-op mode is not working on Xbox.


@killcrazycarl but no seriously Ubisoft they need to fix coop is not even joke nobody on Xbox can’t even join or invite somebody to your World and the sad thing about it everybody wants to play co-op with the homies man but ubi just want us assassin’s to suffer more more each day until they fix it man it’s been 5 months already like c’mon now plz fix it we all want to have fun playing co-op with our homies.

Hey, I’m planning to buy this game but only if all features which I am paying for are available and so far it seems co-op is broken for xbox. When will this be fixed? Its been months since it was broken, 4-5 months. Can we have an update from Ubisoft on how the investigation is going? Found the cause of the problem yet? ETA on the co-op being fixed and therefore making the broken achievements related to the co-op obtainable again.

With some reports dating back months, many are wondering if Ubisoft has pulled the plug on the servers.

Once again, Ubisoft Support has commented on the matter and said they are still investigating the issue where Assassin’s Creed Unity co-op multiplayer mode is not working on Xbox.

Thank you! We are continuing to investigate issues with connecting to the servers for Assassin’s Creed Unity. Could you please let us know your Ubisoft username?

We hope they fix the problem in the coming days since players have been waiting for months now. Rest assured, we will be updating this space when the issue is resolved so stay tuned for more information.
