Ubisoft shutting down servers and multiplayer for 15 games

Ubisoft are under the microscope similar to Activison Blizzard.

Ubisoft has confirmed that it is set to shut down multiplayer and online services for 15 games on September 1st.

A number of games that have been released in previous years will no longer have active servers and they will no longer receive any kind of online updates.

The games include five Assassin’s Creed titles, Far Cry 3, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

In what is a huge blow for some players, this means that DLC will also now be unable to install, for games including Assassin’s Creed 3.

Ubisoft wrote on its support page, as per IGN: “Closing the online services for some older games allows us to focus our resources on delivering great experiences for players who are playing newer or more popular titles.

IGN has published the full list of games that will have the services turned off, along with the services that will be turned off.
