When Ubisoft announced that it was shutting down servers for several of its older games, it came as a surprise to people who still regularly play multiplayer matches on Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and both Rainbow Six Vegas games. Online play had already felt as if it had been quietly killed off due to various server issues, but according to Ubisoft, it had begun experiencing technical difficulties with these games.
“Following a critical update on our online services management platform, we had to temporarily shut down the servers of Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Rainbow Six Vegas, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2,” a Ubisoft rep explained to Rock Paper Shotgun, adding that the stability and quality of those affected games had begun to fall behind in recent times.
“As for Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, our teams have investigated and found that these titles couldn’t meet our stability and quality standards while running said update. As technology evolves and we hold to our promise to only deliver the best experiences to our players, it was unfortunately necessary to permanently discontinue online features surrounding those two legacy games.”
