Mark Rubin addresses XDefiant’s bug issues

Mark Rubin, the executive producer of XDefiant, came to the game’s defense in an X post. The outspoken game developer cited that new releases typically have bugs to iron out, and such situations were standard for initial releases. In his post, Rubin spoke up on the difficulty of developing such Live-Person Shooter games, especially with the choice to use Ubisoft’s Snowdrop game engine as a core component of the development process.

According to Rubin, the game’s First-Person Shooter (FPS) infrastructure had to be developed from scratch since the game engine used had been originally developed for something else. Rubin stated that using Ubisoft’s engine resulted in many bugs and issues that were already covered when creating such a game with other engines.

We’re not a shooter that’s been out for 20 years. If you like what we are trying to do, stick around, and you’ll see things improve, and new features get added. But if the game isn’t for you, that’s ok, you can move on.”
