The following games will leave players unable to play multiplayer, link Ubisoft accounts in-game, or use online features.

The next couple of games will lose the ability to link Ubisoft accounts in-game or use online features, but seemingly not to play multiplayer modes.

  • Splinter Cell Blacklist (PS3, Xbox 360)
  • ZombiU (Wii U)

The following list of PC games will also leave players unable to play multiplayer, link Ubisoft accounts in-game, or use online features. In addition, any DLC for the game will become inaccessible and will no longer be downloadable.

Finally, there are a couple of exceptions that will also be affected by the server closures. All multiplayer modes will become unavailable in Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on Xbox 360 and PS3. To play the campaign in single-player, Ubisoft states you will have to set your console into offline mode. This will also render a lot of achievements and trophies discontinued. The last game is Space Junkies. As this is a multiplayer-only title on PC through HTC Vive and Oculus, this game will be unplayable from September 1.
