Ubisoft and Massive has conducted a hotfix on their servers during an approximately 3 hour long period of maintenance initiated at 12 AM Pacific time. The hotfix is to fix the problem with the missing daily missions in the game that has been plaguing the game recently.
But why has this problem been appearing in the first place? Massive has made no comment as of yet, but one Reddit user poking around in the game files might have the answer. He believes that the skipped daily mission may have something to do with Massive dedicating a daily mission to the date “April 31st”, which does not exist (remember kids, 30 days hath September, April, June and November).
“Updated the list of Daily Missions to avoid any potential missing days. Please note that the list has been updated on the server only and may not appear updated in the client files.”
The maintenance began at 12 AM Pacific Time (8 AM UK Time) and continued for three hours. It is unclear whether a client-side update is also planned by Massive Entertainment, as their message clearly states that the update “may not appear updated in the client files”. It’s also not clear whether this is the “permanent solution” Massive suggested they’re looking into. Uncertainty seems to be a common theme with this whole episode.
