Then don't attach one lousy achievement to a small service, once the game loses playership of course they wont use it anymore. But hey I am going to try and unlock them lol
DEATH IS CERTAIN.

The achievement was changed to "Create and save a character to your profile" for Re-Elected (instead of "... and share a character online") and doesn't require use of the online service according to solutions for it.

Or are you referring to a different achievement? If so, let me know, and I can update the article with the information.

Glad that Gat: Out of Hell doesn't have any achievements relating to this since I haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Guess I will log-on before it shuts down to see if I have any screenshots on there.

No, the Xbox One versions are not affected.

At least they have the decency to warn people about it. Kudos to them. Some other companies should take note.

This is slightly un-related, but why isn't Saints Row IV: Re-Elected included as part of "The Saints Row Series" on the site? It's got its own set of achievements - seems like it would qualify - more-so than Agents of Mayhem?
Timing is Key...

It is. Technically, it's a platform/region variant and not a 'different game' so it doesn't show up unless you pick 'All' on the right side.
Game On.

Personal quibble, but I wish 'All' was default. Sort of like excluding DLC from titles, I feel like picking only unique versions should be the alternate option rather than the default.
I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

"Saints Row IV: Re-Elected does not require players to use My Steelport for any achievements."

Says that right in the article.
Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.
