Ghost Recon Wildlands & Breakpoint Down & “Ribera” Connection Issues Plaguing Players for More Than a Week; Ubisoft Aware of Problems

ghost recon wildlands down

Those seeking to play Ghost Recon Wildlands (and even Breakpoint), you might be experiencing issues connecting to the game since last week. If so, it’s not just you, but Ghost Recon Wildlands & Breakpoint down reports have been flooding the game’s subreddit, and as of August 15, it’s still having issues.

Ghost Recon Wildlands & Breakpoint Down Status and Updates

The incident was first reported nine days ago, with the Ghost Recon subreddit mods posting the following message:

Hey folks your friendly neighborhood mod here,

Wildllands servers are apparently offline, might be due to it being added to game pass and the influx of new people trying to connect at once, I’m reaching out to the Ubisoft folks we have on the team to see if they have any insight but please refer to this thread for any updates regarding server status.

After that message has been posted, Ubisoft acknowledged the issue affecting both games. It seems with a megathread that’s still active today with players reporting problems connecting. The code that appears the most for people having issues connecting is “Ribera.”


There are a couple of workarounds that players have found, though not with 100 percent accuracy that it’ll work:

I have been looking all over the place for an answer but something I did find that worked was defecting the first boss (LA yuri Y El Pilito) again. I was board and decided to just mess around and replay the first boss mission and after that it said that I was connected and ever since I have been able to play online. I told a couple of my friends about that and it seemed to work for them too.

What’s odd here is, some players have said that they managed to get online, while other people still cannot connect. Some have also said that they managed to connect to the Ghost Recon servers and play, but after logging out and trying again, it won’t let them back in.

The last message from the official Ubisoft Support account regarding the Wildlands server issues was yesterday, where it said that Ubisoft are still looking into the issue:


As for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft has also acknowledged that game’s server and connection issues as well, though that issue should be resolved now per Ubisoft:

If you want to keep updated on the discussion regarding the outages, the game’s subreddit has a dedicated thread for it. Ubisoft’s forums also has a dedicated thread for the Ribera error too.

We’ll be updating this post as more news regarding the situation surfaces. Hopefully, it’ll be resolved soon.
