Since its hype-fueled launch, Ubisoft’s For Honor has been widely criticized for a range of issues such as poor server stability, lack of balance, and unfair in-game prices. Due to the numerous issues, reports claim that player numbers have decreased dramatically, though a new statement from a Ubisoft rep attempts to discredit this as mere rumor.

During a recent For Honor livestream, Ubisoft Community Developer Eric Pope announced the schedule for the game’s latest patch, while having a dig at those who would criticize the title’s lack of popularity.

 “We have a lot of players in For Honor – believe it or not, fake news people, we have a lot of players in For Honor – to roll it out to.”
