Ubisoft has postponed the shutdown date of several multiplayer servers for selected games.
The shutdowns were previously announced to go into effect on September 1, 2022, but now the services will stay up for an additional month, shutting down on October 1, 2022, instead.
In an update to the original post, Ubisoft said decommissioning online services for older games were something the firm does not take lightly. Still, it was also necessary as the technology that drove those services became obsolete. The video game company added over the last month, its teams have been hard at work exploring what is possible to reduce disruption.
Ubisoft’s games which will continue seeing online services include:
For PC gamers, Ubisoft notes to activate any single-player DLC for the affected games before the servers close on October 1 so they can continue playing it after the date. Console gamers will see no effect on access to single-player DLC.
Note that the server shutdowns are only for the original PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions of the games. Any newer ones, such as Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One or Far Cry 3 Classic Edition, will be unaffected.
