A master list of games that have had their servers taken offline by Ubisoft was recently updated with a sizable list of recognizable names. You can expect servers for the following games to go offline by June 1, 2021: Assassin’s Creed 2, Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands, Far Cry 2, Anno 1404, Might & Magic – Clash of Heroes, Splinter Cell Conviction, The Settlers 7, and Might & Magic X – Legacy.

However, another group of games in the Tom Clancy franchise is also going offline soon. The only difference is that we don’t know exactly when. Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Rainbow Six Lockdown, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and Rainbow Six Vegas are all losing their servers this year. The only timeframe offered in the master list is the vague window of 2021.

But what will actually happen to these games? Well, for starters their multiplayer services will be gone. Of course, single-player content will remain intact if you want to go back and play an old campaign or two. However, you won’t earn any rewards playing these games anymore. Units and actions are being disabled for all of these games, along with all of their rewards. That also applies to items you’ve already unlocked, so say goodbye to those precious extra outfits in Assassin’s Creed 2.

Can servers for these games really be that expensive to run tho?

Thays the only good thing about p2p games, they never require servers, just other players.

I haven’t played it in years but R6: Vegas was an amazing game, one of the true next gen games I ever played on 360
And it's still the best 3rd person shooter over a decade later because modern AAA is absolute dogshit

Shame about Anno 1404, the game came out in 2009, but the gameplay didn't age and still looks pretty good.
