Ubisoft closes online services for old games


Ubisoft recently announced the discontinuation of online services and multiplayer functionality for several of its older games such as Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Rayman Legends.

On September 1 this year, many of these games will be added to Ubisoft’s list of decommissioned online services.

In its official blog post, the famous video game company said that this was done to focus resources on the newest and most popular games, as well as to improve the overall experience of players.

According to Ubisoft, alongside Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed II and the 2012 version of Assassin’s Creed 3 will also be added to the list of decommissioned online services.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood was originally released in 2010 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and for Windows in 2011, receiving multiple accolades and commercial success at its peak. Even though the main gameplay does not require an active internet connection, losing access to its online services would mean that DLC installation and multiplayer services will no longer be available.

Further online functionality and login using a Ubisoft Account will also not be possible once online services are officially decommissioned by Ubisoft.
