Ubisoft announced today that they will stop providing online feature support for 15 older games starting September 1, 2022. The works involved include “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood”, “Anno 2070”, “Space Junkies”, etc.
The impact includes the inability to enable multiplayer mode or download and install DLC, and Officials say the move is to “pool resources to provide a better experience for players of newer, more popular games.”
In other words, pure multiplayer games such as “Star Wars” will simply become unplayable after September 1. For games like Ghost Recon Future Soldier, you need to turn on the offline mode of the console to run the personal campaign.
That said, quite a few of these 15 games have been supported for 10 to 12 years, but it’s a blow to the players who are still playing them anyway. The complete list of “retired” can be found here , and friends in need can read it.
