If you have fond memories of older Ubisoft games with online components from the early 2010s, you may want to check them out soon. That’s because Ubisoft will drop support for online services in 15 different games on September 1, 2022, including Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
In a statement posted on Ubisoft’s website, the company says it is shutting down the online services in some of its older games to “focus our resources on delivering great experiences for players playing newer or more popular titles.” Depending on the title, gamers will no longer be able to access multiplayer modes or even download and install additional content (DLC).
Affected games are spread across a variety of platforms including the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, HTC Vive, Oculus, and Wii U, with notable titles including Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, the release of 2012 Assassin’s Creed 3, anno 2070 and more. And in some cases like space junkies, a multiplayer-only title, the game is completely unplayable. Meanwhile, for others like: Ghost Recon future soldier, you need to put your console in offline mode to play the solo campaign.
While most of these games have had support for 10 to 12 years since their release, it’s still a little sad to see Ubisoft drop support for online services for some of its most iconic franchises — especially in titles where DLC isn’t. will be more accessible.
