Updating: Panic over! Ubisoft has contacted True Performance to explain that these Xbox 360 games were taken offline due to “short maintenance” and have since been brought back online.

Here is an excerpt from the statement posted on the website:

“We will provide advance notice before shutting down online services for our games and have updated our support article to reflect this.”


Original story: Ubisoft appears to have shut down the servers of a selection of its legacy software, rendering some performance lists inaccessible. The company recently launched a huge list of now closed Xbox 360 gamesincluding a selection of Assassin’s Creed titles, Far cry 3 and more.

The full list — which spans multiple different systems — is extensive and makes for not-so-nice reading. However, as noted by True Achievementsmost of these appear to have been closed for some time, and Ubisoft is now going public about the closures.

Still, a selection of these have only just closed, as their servers were live just a few weeks ago. Here’s that list of newer closures, featuring a selection of Ubisoft franchises on Xbox 360 (thanks, TA

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
  • Beyond good and evil
  • Blazing Angels 2
  • Far cry 3
  • Just Dance Kids 2014
  • Rabbids: Alive and Kicking
  • Smurfs 2

Of these 10 titles, four now have unfinished achievement lists, that is, you can’t get the maximum gamer score without online achievements. Those four games are Assassin’s Creed III, Brotherhood and Revelations, and Rabbids: Alive and Kicking.

While it’s unfortunate that support for these older titles has dropped, it’s expected to eventually happen. We would like to see these games improve their online performance before that date, but sometimes such a move is simply not feasible due to their age.

Did you miss any of these achievements? Annoyed that you can’t go back and get them? Let us know your thoughts on the closures below.
