It became known that on January 25, 2024, Ubisoft will discontinue the online services of ten of its projects, including four Assassin’s Creed games as well as games from the Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and Trials series.

This means that users of the developments listed below will not be able to access multiplayer mode, connecting to a Ubisoft account and other online features.

The full list of Ubisoft games in the server shutdown queue looks like this:

  • Assassin’s Creed II (Xbox 360);
  • Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (Mac)
  • Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD (PS3, Xbox 360);
  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (PC);
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (PC);
  • Heroes of Might and Magic VI (PC);
  • NCIS (PC);
  • RUSE (PC);
  • Splinter Cell: Conviction (Xbox 360);
  • Trials Evolution (PC).

It is noteworthy that some of the listed projects have already lost their network capability in versions for other target platforms – this happened in autumn 2022 with a one-month delay.

Ubisoft assures that server shutdowns will only impact specific online functions and will not affect the overall availability of projects: “Once you purchase these games, you can continue to play them.”.

The work of keeping older games’ online features up to date has become less and less worthwhile over the years. Ubisoft describes the shutdown as necessary due to the outdated technology behind these services.
