Ubisoft pushes DLC and Service Shutdowns back to October 1st, Anno 2070 remains online

Ubisoft pushes DLC and Service Shutdowns back to October 1st, Anno 2070 remains online

After announcing at the beginning of July that several older titles would lose online features and DLC on September 1st, Ubisoft recently moved the deadline back one month to October 1st. The full announcement and updated listing of titles follows:

Last month, we shared an update about decommissioning the online services of some of Ubisoft’s older games on 1 September 2022, and today we have a small update on where things are at.

Decommissioning online services for older games is something we do not take lightly, but it is also a necessity as the technology that drove those services becomes obsolete. Over the last month, our teams have been hard at work exploring what is possible to reduce disruption.

As a result, we moved the decommission date from 1 September 2022 to 1 October 2022, and the single-player downloadable content (DLC) of several games on PC – Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed III (2012 release), Far Cry 3 and Splinter Cell Blacklist – will be available to download and keep before that date.

If you own these games on PC, activate your DLC before the decommissioning on 1 October 2022 to continue playing it. There will be no impact to the same single-player DLC on consoles, and you will continue to be able to download and play them after 1 October 2022. You can find out more in an update from the Assassin’s Creed team.

More, there is still an active game team working on Anno at Ubisoft Mainz, and a taskforce was dedicated to deploying an update to Anno 2070 that will upgrade the game and replace its old online services, allowing players to enjoy its online features into the future.The below titles will be added to our list of decommissioned online services on 1 October 2022. Please note that Space Junkies for PC (HTC VIVE, Oculus) will be decomissioned on 1 September 2022 as planned. Below you will find a detailed breakdown for the effects of this new round of decommissions per platform.
