Servers Shut Down for Five Xbox 360 Ubisoft Titles in September

By Kelly Packard, 4 months ago
Server closures and de-listings, the root of every gamer's nightmares. With the newest generation of consoles having been available since 2013, Ubisoft is beginning to clean house on some of their older multiplayer servers. Today we bring you the regrettable news that Ubisoft has detailed their plans to shut down the online services for five Xbox 360 titles next month.

Call of Juarez: Bound in BloodCall of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Earlier today, Rebecca informed our readers through her weekly Content Roundup that Might and Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars had been unexpectedly de-listed from the Xbox store. After this, it is no surprise to see it atop Ubisoft's list of games set to receive server closures. The following five games will have their servers shut down and online services discontinued as of September 24th, 2016:

While some games in the past have not been stripped of all their online features after Ubisoft announced their closures, others like James Cameron's Avatar have. Using our filters, we've compiled a list of the achievements that may become unobtainable when the servers are shut down. In the coming weeks, our Gaming Session calendar will become packed with gamers looking to clean up their remaining achievements in these titles, so please don't be shy to join or create a session if you're eager to add these to your gamerscore.
