You have one more month.

Ubisoft has delayed the shutdown date of several multiplayer servers for some of its games. The shutdowns were supposed to go into effect on September 1, but now they will stay up for an additional month, shutting down on October 1 instead.

“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,” Ubisoft says in an update to the original post. “Over the last month, our teams have been hard at work exploring what is possible to reduce disruption.”

The games which will continue seeing online services include:

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations
  • Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD
  • Driver San Francisco
  • Far Cry 3
  • Ghost Recon Future Soldier
  • Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
  • Rayman Legends
  • Silent Hunter 5
  • Splinter Cell: Blacklist
  • ZombiU

The only exception to the new shutdown date is Space Junkies, which will have its servers turned off on September 1 as planned.

Furthermore, the team over at Ubisoft Mainz will push out an update to Anno 2070 that will upgrade and replace its old servers so players can enjoy the online components.

For PC players, Ubisoft notes to activate any single-player DLC for the affected games before the servers close on October 1 so that they can continue playing it after the date. Console players will see no impact on access to single-player DLC.

Note that the server shutdowns are only for the original PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions of the games. Any newer ones such as Far Cry 3 Classic Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One or Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will not be affected.

2022 has seen quite a few multiplayer server shutdowns, including Killzone Shadowfall earlier this month.
