Ubisoft, however, has decided that, for these games, their online servers and functionality are no longer needed, and they are going to shut them down immediately on September 1st, 2022, while also taking away access to certain DLC. For a couple of different older single-player games, according to the Ubisoft support page, the shutdown means installation and access to the DLC will not be available from September 1. Ubisoft stated this move has been necessary so that it can allocate that resources to other titles which are more recent and highly popular.

Starting on September 1, 2022, its 15 oldest games will have their servers closed, and will consequently lose access to multiplayer and certain DLC. Ubisoft is known to regularly turn off multiplayer and other online services to its classic games over the years, and today, the publisher shared another list of its games to receive the same treatment at some point later in 2022. Ubisoft has released a new support document that may provide confirmation that the publisher is going to shut off multiplayer and online services for 15 of its older games on Sept. 1, 2022.

The list is as follows

  • Anno 2070
  • Assassin’s Creed 2
  • Assassin’s Creed 3
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations
  • Driver San Francisco
  • Far Cry 3
  • Ghost Recon Future Soldier
  • Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
  • Rayman Legends
  • Silent Hunter 5
  • Space Junkies
  • Splinter Cell: Blacklist
  • ZombiU

With PS3 and Xbox 360 no longer supported by most developers now, a number of games released on these consoles will see their online services closed. Shutting down online features means players will no longer be able to play those games in competitive or co-op multiplayer modes, if they have any, or use the game’s rewards, statistics, or messaging services, in certain cases.

Most of these games will still be playable offline, but you will be unable to play any of the multiplayer modes online, link your Ubisoft account when you are in-game, and buy/install any of the DLC. In total, 90 games are now playable only offline, as a result of Ubisoft closing the online services, meaning that any news, updates, player statistics, and online multiplayer will no longer function within those games. Shutting down the online services of certain older games allows Ubisoft to concentrate resources on providing superior experiences to players playing the newest or most highly-rated titles.
