Ubisoft ends online support for 91 games

In the past year, Ubisoft has discontinued online support for a list of games that has grown to 91 titles. This means that all multiplayer components associated with these games will no longer be accessible, as well as any achievements or unlockable items associated with the online aspect of the game. However, it’s worth noting that support for these games was not stopped all at once and will not necessarily affect all platforms.

Many of the titles are remarkably old and no longer playable on modern hardware, some even dating back to the Wii era. But at the risk of aging myself, much of the list reads like a rap sheet of my wasted hours in college. Some of the standouts are: Tom Clancy’s EndwarSplinter Celland World in conflict† Even some staples of the 360 ​​and PS3 generation are gone too, like Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2HAWX 2and Beyond good and evil

This wouldn’t be much of a problem, except it basically destroys large chunks of gaming history. Like this article by Jeremy Winslow from Kotaku It should be noted that games with large online components are often lost in time when publishers decide to no longer support them, especially when they are so hesitant to give communities access to the tools to keep them alive.

Understandably, a company can’t be expected to keep a game alive forever, but some of these games represent some significant achievements on behalf of the people who develop them. To have those assets erased forever seems like a net loss to game history.
