Ubisoft has announced today via an official blog post on their website that the Uplay Passport service will not be a part of any future Ubisoft games and will be closed effective immediately.
The decision by Ubisoft to close their Uplay Passport service has come after complaints from players who purchased the new Assassin’s Creed IV game which was shipped with one in the case.
Ubisoft explains their decision to close the service:
“The Uplay Passport program was initiated as a means of giving customers full access and support for online multiplayer and features, along with exclusive content, bonuses and rewards. However, games today are blurring the line between offline and online, between what is “single player” and what is “multiplayer.” Based on that and on the feedback we received from you, we recognized that Passport is no longer the best approach for ensuring that all our customers have the best possible experience with all facets of our games.”
Ubisoft has also explained that Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag gamers currently without a Uplay Passport will still be able to download one for free from the Xbox Live network or PlayStation Network.
If you have already purchased a Uplay Passport for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Ubisoft says you will need to contact your regional Ubisoft support team. For more information on the new closure of the Uplay Passport service jump over to the Ubisoft website for details.
