Ubisoft shuts down online services for 91 games | Engadget

You may be disappointed if you were planning a nostalgic Ubisoft-themed gaming session. Kotaku reports that Ubisoft has shut down online services for 91 games. Many of them are old, or versions of old (and sometimes obsolete) platforms. You’re not playing Assassins creed brotherhood by using the long-dead OnLive service, for example. However, there are some games you can still play on current hardware, or may have good reason to visit again.

The first two Far Cry games have lost online support for e.g. pc and Blood Dragon will not connect to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Just Dance fans may need to stick to newer games. Although it is not surprising that Ubisoft dropped support for PS3, Wii, Wii U and Xbox 360 versions of Just Dance 2018 and before, PS4 and Xbox One gamers might not have liked to lose access to the songs from Just Dance 2014 or 2015.

Other classics you might miss include In addition to good and evilthe original Ghost Reconseveral Rainbow Six games, older Settlers titles, and certain Splinter Cell releases (inclusive Chaos theory and Conviction). Games that used Ubisoft Connect do not allow you to earn devices, and you can not unlock content on any platform or access it on PCs.

Ubisoft is not in a hurry to leave some players in the dark – it’s closing right now Rainbow Six Lockdown support for PS2, GameCube and original Xbox owners. Still, you probably will not be thrilled if you have kept an old console to play your youth games.
