Ubisoft Delays Online Feature Shutdown in Older Games

Ubisoft has given players an extra month to download DLCs and check out online modes in games such as Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed III.

Ubisoft has postponed the announced shutdown of DLC and online feature support in its older games to October 1, i.e. by a month.

Previously, the French publisher had planned that, among others, Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist will lose access to expansions and multiplayer modes on September 1. However, as it turns out tomorrow we will say goodbye only to the shooter Space Junkies.

It was also confirmed that single-player DLCs for more than a dozen games will remain available for download on PC until October 1. After that date, the DLCs will still be available for purchase and download on consoles.

As for Anno 2070, it has long been announced that players will receive an update that will enable them to continue playing in multiplayer in this strategy game. In a new announcement it has been confirmed that an appropriate patch for the game will be made available on Tuesday, September 6. As stated, on that day at 9 pm PT a technical break will begin, which may last up to 24 hours. After its completion, owners of Anno 2070 will gain access to a new, updated version of the game.

For more details - including a full list of games and the changes that will take place on October 1 - please see our separate news.

Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
