Anno, Assassin’s Creed and more: Ubisoft shuts down online services for older games

Ubisoft announces the shutdown of online services for several older games. As the company announces on its website, individual games from well-known series such as Assassin’s Creed, Anno and Far Cry will be taken offline on September 1st. Multiplayer games are then no longer possible. This affects, among other things, the development game Anno 2070, which came onto the market in 2011. According to the information, neither multiplayer battles nor the linking of Ubisoft accounts in the game will then be possible. “As you know, Anno 2070 has several features linked to these online services,” writes Ubisoft Mainz in a recent blog entry.

So that individual functions can still be used in Anno 2070 after September 1st, the developers have decided to use some of the developer resources to update the old Anno 2070 online services infrastructure to a new system . “At the moment, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to successfully upgrade or replace all old services,” the makers add. However, all functions are still available as usual until September 1st; The developers want to submit further updates in the coming weeks.
