Several classic Ubisoft titles’ online services have recently been shut down by Ubisoft.
Just like other game companies that have slowly taken down the online multiplayer functions of their games, Ubisoft has now followed suit. The makers of the Assassin’s Creed franchise have now shut down 90 classic Ubisoft titles online features and multiplayer for possibly focusing more on the newer games.
The list of the 90 games that got their online support shut down can be seen on the official post. These titles included triple A classics like Assassin’s Creed 2, Beyond Good and Evil, Far Cry 2, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Heroes of Might and Magic 5, Just Dance 2018, and more.
The games that got their online multiplayer services shut down will have its in-game news, player statistics, online multiplayer functions, and more get disabled. Ubisoft did assure that the offline features for each game will still remain available.
The games that used Ubisoft Connect Services will have their Units and Challenges disabled. Players will no longer be able to earn Units by completing the challenges in-game. The Rewards can still be unlocked, but they will not be able to receive them in-game, which is useless.
The unlockable content like maps and skins will be disabled as well. Players will not be able to unlock them in-game. PC will not have unlockable content even if they have redeemed them previously. Consoles, on the other hand, will still be available but will be removed if they reset the save files.
Better transfer those console save files from classic Ubisoft titles if you want your unlockables still available for you.
