Watch Dogs 2 players complain Xbox One S controller doesn’t work

Watch Dogs 2 is finally out and a lot of people are delighted by finally being able to once again step in the shoes of a talented hacker that uses his skills to make the world a better place. This time around, players have a new character to represent them as well as a new villain.

Unfortunately, as soon as the game hit the shelves, the first issues arose. The issue in question is related to game controls and how many people have found themselves in a position where they couldn’t use their controllers to play the game. Many of them took to the forums to ask for help but also critique inconvenience.

Xbox one S controller doesn’t work wirelessly connected to blue tooth. Works fine with every other game.

While people were voicing their frustration on the Ubisoft forums, an admin came along to help players solve the problem. According to the Ubisoft forum admin, players should first try and check the integrity of the UPlay client, i.e. the Uplay files. Also, they should disconnect all other USB peripherals before attempting to connect the controller.

Same issue for me.

Verify files did not fix the issue.

I just updated my controller via ‘Xbox accessories’ that didn’t work.

Unfortunately, there are still people trying to find a solution for this problem, going as far as completely reinstalling Watch Dogs 2. While this might seem a bit extreme, it’s the only fix to the problem that some can think of as the reluctance of Xbox One S wireless Bluetooth controllers to work with the game seems to come out of nowhere, with no official statement regarding the issue made public as of yet.
