A total of 10 older Ubisoft titles will see their online services shut down on January 25, 2024, Ubisoft has announced.
Among the list of titles are numerous Assassin’s Creed titles for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which as of January will no longer support any form of multiplayer, the ability to link Ubisoft accounts, or claim Ubisoft Connect rewards. Other titles affected include Splinter Cell: Conviction for Xbox 360, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for PC, Trials Evolution for PC, and others.
“Decommissioning the online services for older games is something we do not take lightly, however, it is also a necessity as the technology behind these services becomes outdated,” Ubisoft states in a blog post announcing the shutdown.
Below is the full list of titles affected by the shutdown:
- Assassin’s Creed II – Xbox 360
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – MAC
- Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD – PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
- Assassin’s Creed Revelations – PC
- Ghost Recon Future Soldier – PC
- Heroes of Might and Magic VI – PC
- NCSI – PC
- Splinter Cell: Conviction – Xbox 360
- R.U.S.E. – PC
- Trials Evolution – PC
It’s not the first time Ubisoft has shut down services for some of its older titles. In October 2022, Ubisoft turned off online services for 15 games, including Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Far Cry 3. A previous round of shutdowns earlier in 2022 saw Ubisoft disable online functionality for an even larger number of titles (some of which were originally listed by mistake), including Rainbow Six: Vegas and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.
