Ubisoft Has Shuttered 90 Online Games
Death’s scythe was hanging precariously above 90 plus games.
The announcement came via Ubisoft's website: “The online multiplayer services for the titles listed below have now been shut down. The offline features for each game remain available.” It’s clear that Ubi have been careful in how the article has been worded, aware of a possible backlash if games were taken down in their entirety.
Are You Going To Miss These Games?
If the game used Ubisoft Connect services the ability to earn Units by completing challenges will no longer be possible. In-game news and player statistics have also been disabled. If you have recently purchased one of the below games and are yet to get all the Unlockable content (UCL) the article stated that unlocking them would “no longer be possible,” effectively deserting the content in the ether.

“On PC, ULC will no longer be available even if it has been redeemed previously. On console, the ULC will continue to be available unless you reset your saved game files.”
The original list of games has since been updated by Ubisoft as it had mistakenly been updated with a number of games that “were taken offline for a short maintenance and services have been restored”. These games were Anno 2070, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed 3, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Driver San Francisco, Far Cry 3, Silent Hunter 5 and Splinter Cell Blacklist.
