Ubisoft pauses ‘decommissioning’ of old games, reverses course on DLC deactivation

Ubisoft’s shambolic “decommissioning (opens in new tab)“of more than a dozen older games took an unexpected turn today with a surprise announcement that the process—well, most of it—has been delayed to give people one final chance to snag the content that’s going away.

The whole thing began in early July when Ubisoft announced that the online features of some older games—including one-time biggies like Far Cry 3, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and a bunch of Assassin’s Creeds—were being shut down, so Ubisoft could “focus [its] resources on delivering great experiences for players who are playing newer or more popular titles.”
