Far Cry 3, Assassin’s Creed Online Services Shutting Down

by Ali Mahmud

Ubisoft is shutting down Far Cry 3 and older Assassin’s Creed online services among more than a dozen games from the PlayStation 3 era. Starting September 1, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC players will no longer be able to access online components of a number of legacy games, with PC players even losing access to some downloadable content, which has drawn the gaming community’s ire.
