Ubisoft is shutting down multiplayer for 15 ‘older’ games, and even ‘access to some DLC’

Ubisoft has announced it will be deactivating the servers of some of its older games on September 1.

The shutdowns mean that owners of multiple games will be unable to play multiplayer at all for multiple Assassin’s Creed titles, Far Cry 3, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Driver San Francisco and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

In addition, many PC titles will no longer be able to install or access DLC and Ghost Recon Future Soldier’s single-player campaign will only work in offline mode, according to Ubisoft.

The publisher claims that 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.”

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope lands on October 20th!

Units and Challenges for the games that used Ubisoft Connect will also be disabled, meaning players will no longer be able to earn Units for completing certain tasks.

Content that could be unlocked through Ubisoft Connect, such as maps and skins, will also be disabled, meaning players will no longer be able to unlock them.

This is the second round of server closures from Ubisoft this year. In April, it closed the multiplayer portions of titles such as Avatar, Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, marking an end to the ability to officially play those games online.

The full list of games to be taken offline, according to Ubisoft, is as follows:
