Gaming News
By Andrew Parker - July 18, 2022

In the gaming business, shutting down servers and services is typical. Companies must upgrade to the newest systems when older ones are no longer maintained to stay abreast of emerging technologies. Additionally, Ubisoft is discontinuing online services for several older games launched on various outdated platforms. This includes titles from the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the company’s bestselling IP, which will discontinue these utilities in September. Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is a game that wasn’t included in the first announcement but will still be impacted.

It’s hardly surprising that this game will be impacted by Ubisoft’s decision to discontinue services for some of its earlier products. It was initially launched as Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation. This spin-off game follows Aveline de Grandpre’s exploits as she battled the Templars during the same period as Assassin’s Creed 3. This was made available on the PS Vita in 2012 and was remade as Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360. Then, in 2019, this game would be updated for current-generation consoles as part of Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered. Fans have observed that the Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD Steam page has been delisted, so fans can no longer purchase this outdated version. However, a notification indicates that this Assassin’s Creed game will no longer be playable when Ubisoft’s online services shut down.

This finally implies that users who have already purchased and have the game will no longer be able to use the prior version. According to Ubisoft’s official statement about the deactivation of services for several Assassin’s Creed titles, the updated releases won’t be impacted by this shutdown. The information adds that the goal of the shutdown is to concentrate on the more recent or well-liked games that Ubisoft is presently supporting. The Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster will soon be the sole way for players to get Assassin’s Creed Liberation. Similar to the news of the termination of Ubisoft’s other game services, the response has been largely unfavorable. This can be seen in several recent reviews on the Steam page for Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, where many individuals display their irritation at having purchased the game but being unable to enjoy it come September.
