Ubisoft Connect 2.0 Leak Reveals A Giant Overhaul Coming For The Launcher

The images emerge from a accredited leaker in the industry.

Story Highlights

  • Ubisoft is revamping the Ubisoft Connect 2.0 launcher in a new update, which is already in beta testing by a few users. The images were leaked by ScriptLeakerR6, a reliable insider.
  • The new update will supposedly change the launcher visually and functionally, making it look more streamlined and modernized.
  • The fans have shown a mixed reception, with the users criticizing the new visuals because the launcher resembles Epic Games Store by a mile.
  • We suggest taking the rumor with a grain of salt, as it could be a late April fool’s joke. Ubisoft has not officially announced the update in the past.

Ubisoft is supposedly working on a new Ubisoft Connect 2.0 overhaul update, which has already started replacing the old UI for some users. It started rolling out the major Connect 2.0 beta test to a limited number of users, but the images detailing most of the significant changes have already surfaced online. The pictures have been leaked by a renowned insider, ScriptLeakerR6, showcasing the new Ubisoft Connect 2.0 client in all its glory.

The images of the visual and technical changes have been shared over on the leaker’s discord channel because the update is still protected under NDA. Thus, many new screenshots have emerged for the onlookers interested enough to grab the new Ubisoft Connect 2.0. The visuals appear to change quite a bit in the new update, going for more of a purple background hue. Regardless, it remains unclear whether the specifics are customizable.

As per the newly leaked images, the menu and other options will also be shifted around the Ubisoft Connect 2.0 launcher. The overall launcher has been nicely modernized to keep up with other PC storefronts currently available to the public. Moreover, certain tabs and menus have also adopted a streamlined appearance, as shown in the images.

The new client has received mixed reactions from the fans, as the UI looks weirdly similar to the highly popular Epic Games Store launcher. However, that is expected to change after the beta version ends. Another major point of criticism discusses the slew of technical issues with the launcher; the fans have requested Ubisoft to fix the lingering problems with the login feature first before tackling the Connect 2.0 launcher visuals.

We could see more unique visuals after the global release, but nothing has been confirmed thus far. It is worth noting that Ubisoft has not announced any such updates, and the only current source for it seems to be the leak from a credible insider. The leaker is responsible for leaking a bundle of info regarding Ubisoft’s upcoming Avatar: The Frontiers of Pandora entry, including the first screenshots and the pre-order details.

It could be possible that Ubisoft has been secretly brewing the new update behind the scenes for a long time now because of its internal beta release state. It is suggested to take the new Ubisoft Connect 2.0 update rumor with a slight grain of salt until an official announcement arrives. We may likely hear something official in the near future if the leak is not just a late April fool’s joke.

Ubisoft has had a rough time with its Ubisoft Connect launcher, a replacement for the old UPlay digital store. Despite the struggles, the giant conglomerate has tried to compete with the bigger rivals in the market. Although many bugs need to be squashed before the community is satisfied with the exclusive launcher.
