Various Ubisoft titles are losing their online features on PC, including Assassin’s Creed 2, Far Cry 2 and The Settlers 7.
- Assassin’s Creed 2
- Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands
- Far Cry 2
- Anno 1404
- Might & Magic – Clash of Heroes
- Splinter Cell Conviction
- The Settlers 7
- Might & Magic 10 – Legacy
Admittedly, the above games are all quite old, with the likes of Assassin’s Creed 2 releasing all the way back in 2009. Never the less, the decision is a testament to the fact that digital services have a limited life span. In a post made to its online forum, Ubisoft provided the following statement relating to its decision:
“We are constantly assessing what’s needed to deliver the best possible online services for Ubisoft’s customers. Shutting the services for some older games with smaller online audiences is a necessary part of this process since it allows our IT and service staff to better focus on delivering great online experiences to the vast majority of customers who are playing newer, more popular titles.
“Still, we don’t take the decision to retire services for older Ubisoft games lightly, and we understand some of you may be disappointed by this news. We are happy to have fans that are as committed as you have been to these brands and titles, and we hope that you’ll find more recent or upcoming Ubisoft games which you can be equally as passionate about. Thank you for your understanding and your support.”
The games listed above will be stripped of their online services on 22nd May 2021.
Perhaps now is a good time to revisit these games before they lose their online functionality forever.
