Ubisoft Shutting Down Servers for 15 Games in September

Ubisoft's bringing another wave of service shutdowns for their older games, and on September 1st, 2022, 15 of those games will have their online servers and functionality completely shut down, removing some DLC access at the same time. While these online game servers are running, players are able to use these games to post records, get exclusive rewards, play games with their friends (and competitively), and more.

Ubisoft Shutting Down Servers for 15 Games in September

No video game lasts forever, all things considered. Some games see an end-of-service announcement, and then the game’s online functions will cease to exist. Ubisoft titles aren’t any different, though, as the company will be shutting down 15 games’ online servers and functionality on September 1st, 2022. Ubisoft hasn’t made a public tweet about this; moreover, some people, like the tweet below, mentioned the closure of these games in passing.

So, onto why this is important. For the PC versions of some of these titles, you’ll apparently lose access to purchasing and using downloadable content, in addition to other features like obviously losing Ubisoft Connect access and online multiplayer functionality. As for the games losing access, those can be found at this link, with what exactly is being lost. If you just want the list, you can read that below.

  • Anno 2070 – PC version
  • Assassin’s Creed II – PC and PlayStation 3 versions
  • Assassin’s Creed III (2012 version) – PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions
  • Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD – PC version
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions
  • Driver: San Francisco – PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions
  • Far Cry 3 (2012 version) – PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions
  • Ghost Recon Future Soldier – PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions
  • Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands – PC version
  • Rayman Legends – PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions
  • Silent Hunter 5 – PC version
  • Space Junkies – PC version (HTC Vive and Oculus)
  • Splinter Cell Blacklist – PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions
  • ZombiU – Wii U version

The reason this is important is that, for those 2012 versions that Ubisoft are essentially shutting down, and several other PC titles, you won’t be able to get the game’s DLC if you haven’t already purchased and installed them, meaning you’ll be missing potentially essential content for these titles. Other losses include trophies that involve online multiplayer or online services, as those will no longer be obtainable as well. If you’d like to read the current list of shut down games from Ubisoft, you can do so here. This page also denotes the stock reason Ubisoft provides for shutting servers down, which is “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.”

These games’ online functionalities will be available until September 1st, 2022, so if you’re a trophy hunter or really want specific DLC for the PC versions, you need to get a move on.
