Ubisoft will be shutting down servers for several of its older games, including Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas, Assassin’s Creed II, Far Cry 2, and more. Most of the shutdowns are PC games, with several PS2, Xbox 360, and PSP games also having their servers turned off later this year.
The company explained in a blog post that while multiplayer online services for these titles will be switched off, players can still access solo features. Splinter Cell Conviction featured competitive and cooperative multiplayer, but co-op can still be played locally.
If the game is Ubisoft Connect-enabled, then this service won’t be available for the game on consoles and the microstransaction currency of Ubisoft Units will also be disabled. Ubisoft did mention that no refunds would be given for unused in-game currencies. Rewards will also be disabled in-game, and even though they can still be unlocked, Ubisoft states players can longer receive them.

Ubisoft’s reason for shutting down these services that only have a small audience is a “necessary” step to allow its IT and service staff to “focus on delivering great online experiences to the vast majority of customers who are playing newer, more popular titles.”
