Ubisoft has announced it’s shutting down the online servers for a number of its older games this September.
As per the Ubisoft Support website, a number of big name older titles will have their online functions cut off later this year. This includes multiplayer functions, and accessing certain DLC. Certain trophies, achievements and awards tied to these DLC will also become unobtainable. “Closing the online services for some older games allows us to focus our resources on delivering great experiences for players who are playing newer or more popular titles,” Ubisoft said.
The titles being closed, along with their platforms, are as follows.
- Assassin’s Creed II, PC, PS3
- Anno 2070, PC
- Assassin’s Creed III (2012 release), PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360
- Driver: San Francisco, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, PC, Xbox 360, PS3
- Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, PC
- Far Cry 3 (2012 release), PC, PS3, Xbox 360
- Assassin’s Creed Revelations, PS3, Xbox 360
- Ghost Recon Future Soldier, PS3, Xbox 360
- Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, PC
- Rayman Legends, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360
- Silent Hunter 5, PC
- Space Junkies, PC (HTC VIVE, Oculus)
- Splinter Cell: Blacklist, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
- ZombiU, Wii U
It should be noted that only the original versions of the games are effected. So the remastered Assassin’s Creed titles such as those found in the Ezio Collection are safe for now. As is the 2018 ‘Classic Edition’ remaster of Far Cry 3 that came out to mark the release of Far Cry 5. Ubisoft will shutdown the online servers for these games on September 1, 2022.
