I find it hard to believe that Ubi had no idea these issues existed, and that now they suddenly care. As someone who works in the software industry, I can tell you leadership makes ship/gold decisions regardless of the state of the product. This is something that occurs industry wide. ANY publicly traded company that tells you that they don't knowingly ship products with bugs is flat out lying.

Also recall here with Ubisoft that there was an embargo they put in place for reviews. This shows pretty clearly they were FULLY aware of the issues, but needed to ship product to appease shareholders.
