Ubisoft is shutting down online servers for 15 games

Ubisoft is shutting down online servers for 15 games. The list includes names such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry as well as Splinter Cell.

As of September 1st, 2022, the online servers for some of Ubisoft’s most popular games will be decommissioned. However, some of these games are well over a decade old. So, it’s fair to say that they’ve had a good run.

Ubisoft says 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.
