“As stated last week, we’d expected to release the patch today (and we know that many are anticipating its release), but we are choosing to hold off until we can give you the improvements we’ve promised,” explained Ubisoft in a blog post.
 
The patch was supposed to be released yesterday, December 15, but there’s no word as to whether it will be released before the end of the week now.

The free games on offer are:
