If you have fond memories of older Ubisoft games with online components from the early 2010s, you might want to visit them soon. That’s because on September 1, 2022, Ubisoft is ending support for online services in 15 different games, including Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
In a post on Ubisoft’s website, the company says it is shutting down online services in some of its older games to “focus our resources on providing great experiences for players playing newer or more popular titles.” Depending on the title, players will no longer be able to access multiplayer modes or even download and install additional content (DLC).
Affected games are spread across various platforms including Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, HTC Vive, Oculus, and Wii U among notable titles assassin’s creed brotherhood, the release of 2012 Assassin’s Creed 3, Year 2070 and more. And in some cases like space junkies, a purely multiplayer title, the game will be completely unplayable. Meanwhile for others such as ghost recon Soldier Of The Future, You have to put your console in offline mode just to play the solo campaign.
While most of these games have been supported for 10-12 years since their release, it’s still a bit sad to see Ubisoft dropping online service support for some of its most well-known franchises – particularly for titles that no longer have DLC will be accessible. For a full list of games that will be decommissioned on September 1st, please visit the company’s help page here for more information.
