Ubisoft announced today that it will be shutting down the server on several classic games including Far Cry 2, Assassin’s Creed II, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas. Most of the affected games are PC games with several others being released on PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 2.
Ubisoft explains that the server shutdown will remove the online multiplayer services for these games, but players can still access single-player campaigns.
“We are constantly assessing what’s needed to deliver the best possible online services for Ubisoft’s customers,” Says Ubisoft adding that “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.”
Here are all the specific details:
1. The multiplayer online services for the title will be shut down but the solo features will remain available.
2. Any In-game News and Player Stats services will be shut down.
3. If the game is Ubisoft Connect-enabled:
- The Ubisoft Connect service will no longer be available for the game on consoles.
- Units (the Ubisoft Connect currency) and Actions for the game will be disabled, meaning you will no longer be able to earn Units by completing Actions for the game.
- Rewards will be disabled in-game, meaning that you can still unlock them, but you will not receive them. If you unlock them after the closure of the online service for the game, please feel free to contact our Customer Support team to be refunded.
4. The ULC will be disabled, meaning that you will no longer be able to unlock them. On PC, even if you have redeemed them, the ULC will no longer be available. On consoles, the ULC will be available until you decide to reset your saved game files.*
5. Players having in-game currency should use it within the 60 days period. There won’t be any refund on unused in-game currency.
