Services for classic Ubisoft games, including Assassin’s Creed 2, Far Cry 3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Anno 2070, will be shut down by Ubisoft in September. Most of the games on the list are getting a little stale, but the three-year-old VR game Space Junkies is also being removed. This means that you will no longer be allowed to play as the game is multiplayer only. While the single-player features of these games may continue to be available after September 1st, multiplayer modes or online functionality may be affected as well as the purchased DLC.
Ubisoft Ends Support for 15 Games
Ubisoft will stop supporting many of its classic titles, including Assassin’s Creed 3, Brotherhood, and Liberation. Ends of support mean all multiplayer features will be disabled, blocking access to any DLC. Due to the end of support, numerous games, including Far Cry 3, Silent Hunter 5, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist, will no longer have their DLCs playable from September 1st.
According to the Ubisoft blog post, remastered versions and DLCs of Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed 3 will continue to be playable. Also, their online installation will not be lost, as they are separate from their original titles.
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. To help us achieve this, a number of older titles will be added to our list of decommissioned online services on September 1st 2022.
The whole list of games that will be shut down starting in September is provided below:
- Anno 2070
- Assassin’s Creed 2
- Assassin’s Creed 3 (with DLC)

Online services for classic Ubisoft games also end the rewards via Ubisoft Connect. Earlier in April, Ubisoft announced that they shut down 90 classic game servers.
