Ubisoft games to go offline

February 6th, 2012 by bash Comments


Games publisher Ubisoft has confirmed that a number of its legitimate PC customers will be unable to play their games from tomorrow (Feb 7) because of problems with the titles’ digital rights management (DRM) antipiracy schemes.

The company said it was “transitioning the hosting of many of its online services from a third-party data center to a new facility”, and as a result, most of its games will lose online functionality.

However, because some of Ubisoft’s PC and Mac games feature DRM that require a constant online connection to the publisher’s servers, those games will be completely unplayable when the publisher takes those servers down for the transition.

The games that will be impacted are:

Assassin’s Creed – Mac

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 – PC

Might & Magic: Heroes VI – PC

Splinter Cell Conviction – Mac

The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom – PC

The Settlers – Mac

Games that will have online functionality throughout the transition are:

Just Dance 3

Anno 2070

Driver: San Francisco

The Settlers Online

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
