The online services for classic Tom Clancy titles, such as Rainbow Six Las Vegas and Ghost Recon Future Soldier, will be shut down by this year.
Ubisoft has decided that it is time to pull the plug on several older titles and shut down their online servers. As reported by Eurogamer, this news was first announced on a Ubisoft support forum.
The forum states the end of online services for multiple titles, including 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 — all with a June 1 closing date.
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. We are happy to have fans that are as committed as you have been to these brands and titles, and we hope that you’ll find more recent or upcoming Ubisoft games which you can be equally as passionate about.Ubisoft
While the forum doesn’t include a confirmed shut-down date for older Tom Clancy titles, we do know that servers for Rainbow Six Las Vegas, Rainbow Six Las Vegas 2, Rainbow Six Lockdown, and Ghost Recon Future Soldier will all be terminated on every platform by the end of this year. However, the solo features for these games will still be available.
These old Tom Clancy titles like Rainbow Six Las Vegas helped set up a solid foundation for what we are enjoying now. Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is the latest addition to the series, which has now gained over 70 millions players worldwide, and even has a healthy esports scene.
While it is sad to see these classic titles getting shut down, players still have the chance to enjoy the exciting gameplay with the newer titles.
