Ubisoft has decided that it will be pulling the plug on another handful of classic games that incorporate multiplayer or some other form of online functionality. The full list, which can be found on the publisher’s official support forums, include major titles such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Rainbow Six Lockdown, and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, as well as Assassin’s Creed 2, Far Cry 2, and Splinter Cell Conviction. Online support for the majority of these games will be terminated on June 1, 2021; ULCs (unlockable content) will no longer be unlockable or available on PC even if they were previously redeemed.

We are constantly assessing what’s needed to deliver the best possible online services for Ubisoft’s customers. Shutting the services for some older games with smaller online audiences is a necessary part of this process, since it allows our IT and service staff to better focus on delivering great online experiences to the vast majority of customers who are playing newer, more popular titles. Still, we don’t take the decision to retire services for older Ubisoft games lightly, and we understand some of you may be disappointed by this news.

  1. I can’t imagine there was much of a player base for these anymore, but still, this is why official servers are so awful.

    I would like to return to a time when the only way to play online was through community operated independent servers.

  2. I had a lot of fun in the Rainbow 6 Vegas multiplayer, but I haven’t played it in years. I think the last time I did was 2009? I never was able to get the last stupid achievement on the Xbox 360 version of the first one for hosting a full 16 player game. I guess I’ll have to see if I can get a group together on one of the achievement forums before June 1 for one last shot to get it.
