Are there no endgames for these games? To some extent, that is correct. However, as time passes, the authors separate subsequent aspects of their life in order to allocate more power to newer and more significant titles (from a certain perspective). It happens that productions stop getting new content first, then they stop getting updates, and finally, the servers are entirely shut down. Sometimes this happens in the order described.
The publishers have made it quite apparent that this is the situation that now exists at Ubisoft. The business has announced that online support would be discontinued for eight games beginning in September of this year (September 1 to be exact). The motivation for this decision is, of course, the eagerness to provide resources to video games that are either in the process of being developed or that might benefit from having additional processing power for multiplayer modes. The following are the productions that will be “shut down” in approximately two months:
- Assassin’s Creed III;
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood;
- Assassin’s Creed Revelations;
- Driver: San Francisco;
- Far Cry 3;
- Ghost Recon: Future Soldier;
- Rayman Legends;
- Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
And despite the fact that the game servers for these titles are not particularly busy at the moment, this may very well be the final chance for a great number of players to get trophies that call for participation in online play (it is worth emphasizing that we are talking only about the original versions, not refreshments). If you feel as though you have the makings of a goblet hunt in you, there is still a little bit of time for you to go to work! Good luck!
