Ubisoft has confirmed that it will soon be ending a number of its games, including Anno 2070, Far Cry 3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Assassin’s Creed 2.
Most of the games included in the list start off a bit, but the three-year-old VR game Space Junkies is also pulled, and since it’s a “multiplayer-only title” you’ll be “unable to play the current game. “. forward”.
While the single-player features of these games are mostly unaffected, multiplayer modes or online features may no longer be available after September 1, along with the ability to purchase DLC.
In some cases, like Ghost Recon Future Soldier, you’ll only be able to play the single-player campaign offline, and you won’t be able to link – or unlock goodies – through your Ubisoft account.

“Closing online services for some older games allows us to focus our resources on providing great experiences for players playing newer or more popular titles,” Ubisoft explained in a blog post. “To help us achieve this goal, a number of older titles will be added to our list of decommissioned online services.”
Ubisoft uses its games to educate players about the impacts of climate change. Playing for the Planet, a UN-led initiative that seeks to use games to “inspire young people to learn and take action for the environment”, includes both Riders Republic and Skull & Bones in its list of games that include in-game events that will raise awareness about climate change.
“Like our current societal challenges, changes must be collaborative, raising awareness and encouraging others to learn and consider other green causes that need attention,” the editor said.
