Ubisoft Classics: French giant Ubisoft has announced that it will shut down the servers for some games, including the first games of Far Cry, Assassin's Creed and Rainbow Six, as early as June. The games on the list that do not have multiplayer, will have their DLCs closed. The news took some fans by surprise, as they are classics of the company that could have a longer life due to the success in previous years in addition to the legion of fans around the world.
The official announcement came through its official website but the reason is not explicit, however it is normal for this to happen not only with Ubisoft but like any large company that has old games with a low number of active players. With Ubi, it was no different.

|Ghost recon future soldier||PC, PlayStation and Xbox|
