Ubisoft to pull support for games, including Assassin’s Creed

0 4


Ubisoft has announced that from this year it will no longer support 11 games, removing access to online and DLC features.

From September 1. Ubisoft is decommissioning a number of its games. This includes a number of older Assassin’s Creed games, as well as games from the popular Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, and Far Cry franchises. Following this date, online features, multiplayer, linking accounts, and access to DLC will become unavailable. 

According to PC Gamer, the games which will be affected are: Anno 2070, Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed 3, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, Driver San Francisco, Far Cry 3, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Silent Hunter 5, Space Junkies, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

After this date players on PC will lose access to all purchased DLC, while console players will only lose access if they start a new game. As per the Ubisoft website, “If you have previously redeemed ULC (Ubisoft’s term for DLC) while playing on PC, it will no longer be available. If you have previously redeemed ULC on console, it may remain available, unless you reset your saved game files.”

Most concerning of these is Space Junkies, an online-only title released in 2019. Once Ubisoft pulls support for the game it will become literally unplayable. Ubisoft is continuing to sell Space Junkies via Steam. While it is currently 75% off, there is no warning to customers that within two months they would be unable to play their new purchase. However, players have been warning potential customers by leaving comments on negative reviews.

In other Ubisoft news, the creative director of Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope says the sequel will be “more dynamic”, while the anonymous developers from Québec-based companies have expressed concerns over a new bill requiring all businesses to conduct themselves in French.
