Multiplayer online games

Ubisoft will offer online services for several older games

Ubisoft has officially announcement that it will retire its online services for a number of older titles on September 1, 2022.

This shutdown of online services means players will no longer be able to access or install DLCs, play multiplayer, link Ubisoft accounts in-game, or use other online features.
