Ubisoft is shutting down multiplayer online services for some older games.
The company has announced that some older titles will no longer be playable online from June.
The solo feature will continue to be available, but the multiplayer service will be offline and all in-game news and player stats services will be shut down.
On June 1st, the following PC games will be affected.
- Assassin’s Creed 2
- Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sand
- Far Cry 2
- Anno 140
- Might & Magic – Clash of Heroes
- Sprinter cell combination
- Settlers 7
- Might & Magic X – Legacy
PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 games that will be offline at some point this year include Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Rainbow Six Lockdown, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and Rainbow Six Vegas.
If the games listed support Ubisoft Connect, the services will not be available for games on the console. You will also not be able to earn units by completing game actions. Benefits will be void in-game. That is, you can unlock the benefits, but you will not receive the benefits.
It also disables unlockable content (ULC) when applied to games. In other words, you will not be able to unlock it. On your PC, you will not be able to use ULC even if you redeem them. The console allows you to use ULC until you decide to reset your saved game files. Therefore, please unlock all content before the date provided by Ubisoft.
If you have in-game currency, you must use it within 60 days. No refunds will be given for unused in-game currency.
Ubisoft has a small online audience because it allows IT and service staff to focus on providing a better online experience to the majority of customers playing newer and more popular titles. He said it was “necessary” to shut down the services of older games. “
