Ubisoft will be closing down online servers for a selection of Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC games this September, putting an end to multiplayer support, access to certain DLC, and the ability to unlock any achievements attached to online functionality.

“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 explained on its support website.

Fifteen titles will be having their online servers shut down on 1st September 2022, although the removal of DLC access seems to only affect the PC versions of each game. You can consult the full list below. 

  • Anno 2070, PC
  • Assassin’s Creed II, PC, PS3
  • Assassin’s Creed III (2012 Release), PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, PC, Xbox 360, PS3
  • Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, PC
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations, PS3, Xbox 360
  • Driver: San Francisco, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
  • Far Cry 3 (2012 Release), PC, 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

Of course, the remastered versions of Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations included in Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection will be unaffected, as will Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Far Cry 3 Classic Edition.

  • I wonder what is going to affect Anno 2070 besides the monthly mission which are a pain to do.
  • well a few of these games are peer to peer for matchmaking but I guess the system for tracking character stats, progress and linking you to that other person for peer to peer is not and that is getting shutdown therefore even peer to peer MP can be lost sadly due to the way it is setup. I wish they actually provided ways in these games to switch over to not requiring servers anymore at least for just custom games.
