It turns out that the Ubisoft may have broken some legacy servers in their latest backend update.
Last week, Ubisoft released some sad news. The French publisher planned to shut down servers that hosted certain features of various legacy games, avoiding multiplayer game modes and also removing the player's ability to download DLC.
The games are mostly quite old, like Far Cry 2, Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands e Assassin's Creed 2, so the shutdown is unlikely to hurt that many players.
However, the Ubisoft is also shutting down servers for several multiplayer-only games, including Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Rainbow Six Lockdown e Rainbow Six Vegas 1 e 2.
The company said this is to free up resources to dedicate itself to the latest games that more people are playing, but that means when the server lights go out later this year, those games will be gone forever.Read also

Turns out they might already be gone. Ubisoft chatted with Rock Paper Shotgun about the shutdown of its 'legacy' server recently, and revealed that players haven't been able to log into Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for months. And it was basically all Ubisoft's fault.
"Following a critical update to our online service management platform, we had to temporarily shut down the servers for Ghost Recon Future Soldiers, Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2," a Ubisoft spokesperson told RPS.
Ubisoft was able to fix any server issues that prevented Ghost Recon: Future Soldier from working, but they weren't so lucky with Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2.
“Regarding Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, our teams investigated and found that these titles did not meet our stability and quality standards while running this update.
As technology evolves and we keep to our promise to provide only the best experiences to our players, unfortunately it has been necessary to permanently discontinue the online features surrounding these two legacy games. "
Unfortunately, no workaround or workaround will be made available to keep these games running, so it will be up to modders to keep these games alive in some way.
