Assassin's Creed 2 glitch breaks game

Save game glitch traps players in Hideout stage

Assassins Creed 2 players are being caught in a game-breaking glitch that see's them trapped in the Hideout with no way of continuing their quest.

Update:Ubisoft is fixing the issue with a patch. More info here.

The error seems to arise if players turn off their console after saving their game upon passing Chapter 11.

We've received multiple emails, with one reader who encountered the glitch telling CVG: "I, like many others, seem to be getting a glitch after finishing sequence 11. After the save I quit out of the game. After I returned the next day it loads the hideout level and nothing happens. You just walk about with nobody there."

It doesn't seem to happen to everyone, but once it does occur there appears to be no way out of it other than to start over again.

CVG has contacted Ubisoft and awaits a reply. For now, we'd advise you not to quit out of the game after that particular checkpoint.
