Ubisoft, as it usually does, ruffled a few feathers when it announced that DLC and online features for certain titles would be decommissioned on September 1st. This included Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, which would not only be delisted on Steam but also unplayable for current owners.

However, the publisher has reversed its decision on the latter. In a recent statement to IGN, it said, “As stated in our support article, only DLCs and online features will be affected by the upcoming decommissioning. Current owners of those games will still be able to access, play or redownload them. Our teams are working with our partners to update this information across all storefronts and are also assessing all available options for players who will be impacted when these games’ online services are decommissioned on September 1st, 2022.

“It has always been our intention to do everything in our power to allow those legacy titles to remain available in the best possible conditions for players, and this is what we are working towards.” Whether DLC remaining purchasable is part of that plan remains to be seen.

In the meantime, other titles that are being affected include Anno 2070, Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed 3 (though the remastered version is safe), and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Though it seems DLC that one paid for will remain accessible, multiplayer is still being disabled. So if you were a fan of the multiplayer in Far Cry 3 (the original 2012 release) or Ghost Recon Future Soldier on PS3 and Xbox 360, you’ll be out of luck.

Who knows? Perhaps this could also change down the line. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
