Correction: Ubisoft says that many of the titles listed in the support article published last week and linked below were taken offline in April 2021, and that other games were taken offline for maintenance, but have since been restored. The full explanatory statement from the publisher follows:
Last week some of our games (Year 2070, assassin’s creed ii, Assassin’s Creed 3, assassin’s creed brotherhood, Driver San Francisco, far away 3, silent hunter 5 Y Splinter Cell Blacklist) have been taken offline for brief maintenance and services have been restored. We will send you a notice before closing any online services for our games and have updated our support article to reflect this.
source story: Ubisoft has stopped offering online services for dozens of its games. As of April 21, 90 legacy games from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 era will no longer have news and stats online or in multiplayer. Some affected franchises include Just Dance, Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Splinter Cell. Ubisoft announced the change on the company’s website.
Offline play will continue to be available for affected games. Ubisoft’s post said the changes also disabled unlockable content like skins and maps in games. Unlockable content for those who own the console version of the games will remain playable unless the player restores a save file. But interestingly, Windows PC players will no longer have access to this content, “even if it has already been used.”
The full list of affected titles can be found on the Ubisoft website. Most of the games are quite old and in some cases are on outdated platforms like the OnLive cloud gaming service. Some classic titles like assassin’s creed 2 It will no longer have online functionality, but will also have newer remastered versions. Other notable titles include Far away Y far cry 2 for Windows PC as well as rainbow six vegas Y rainbow six vegas 2.
