Ubisoft closes the online services of 15 old titles
Ubisoft will shut down online services on several of its older titles, including five Assassin’s Creed games and Legends of Rayman.
Ubisoft regularly shuts down multiplayer and online services for its older titles to free up resources for their new games. In a post on the company’s website, Ubisoft listed 15 titles whose online services would be taken down on September 1.
“Closing online services for some older games allows us to focus our resources on providing great experiences for players playing newer or more popular titles. To help us achieve this goal, a number of older titles will be added to our list of decommissioned online services…”

Decommissioning these games usually means you won’t be able to link your Ubisoft account and use the online features. However, with some titles, you will also not be able to access and download published DLC. It’s the case for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Driver San Francisco and more.
Remastered versions of Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed 3 will not be affected by the rollback, it will only affect the original versions of these games.
The virtual reality arcade shooter space junkies developed by Ubisoft Montpellier is a multiplayer-only title and will therefore close just over three years after its release.
