This measure is due to the technology supporting these games becoming obsolete, making it obsolete to keep them online.

Specifically, four of the affected games belong to the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ series and were originally released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The developer emphasized that this decision was not taken lightly and was necessary due to the development of technology. Online services that will be affected include the ability to play multiplayer, linking in-game Ubisoft accounts and other online features, as well as the inability to redeem Ubisoft Connect rewards.

Fans of these games will have to enjoy them in single-player mode after January 25, 2024, as online services will be permanently discontinued.

Video game company Ubisoft has announced a new delay in the launch of ‘Skull and Bones’. After years of anticipation and multiple extensions to its release date, the game will finally see the light of day in the early months of 2024.

This news came during the presentation of the company’s financial results for the first half of the 2023-2024 fiscal year, while also sharing information about other games coming next year, some of which will be free to players.

‘Skull and Bones’ was first unveiled at E3 in Los Angeles in 2017 with the promise of being a game set in the golden age of piracy, and is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (PS4).

However, months before the planned release date, in June 2018, Ubisoft shared a new trailer showing off gameplay of the game and confirming the inclusion of multiplayer. Earlier this year, the company announced that it was changing the game’s release strategy, canceling three unannounced games and delaying ‘Skull and Bones’ once again.

Ubisoft has confirmed that the pirate game will finally see the light of day in the last quarter of the 2023-2024 fiscal year. This means it will be available between January and March 2024, as its fiscal year begins in April.

In the presentation of the results, the company also highlighted its release catalog for the rest of the financial year, which includes titles such as ‘Assassin’s Creed Mirage’, ‘Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR’, ‘Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’, ‘Just’. Dance 2024 ‘Edition’ and ‘Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown’. They also announced that free games such as ‘Rainbow Six Mobile’, ‘The Division Resurgence’ and ‘XDefiant’ will arrive on these dates.
