It’s a sad time for Ubisoft’s free-to-play gaming communities. The French developer and publisher has decided to weed out the majority of their free online games. Titles like Ghost Recon Phantoms, Might & Magic Duel of Champions, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, Panzer General Online, Silent Hunter Online, and EndWar Online are all on the list of games to be shut down. The studio already published the most important information on the respective game homepages a few days ago. Players haven't been able to spend any real money on the aforementioned online games since the weekend.
The first title to go offline is The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot – a game that combined action-RPG gameplay with tower defense elements. Although the studio created a lot of buzz for the online game before its launch, it was completely neglected after its release. There have neither been content updates nor balancing patches for months. The RPG will go offline on October 25th.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is followed by Might & Magic Duel of Champions, another game that hasn’t gotten a new update in almost an entire year. The browser game will go offline on October 31st. It is not the only title to shut down that day. EndWar Online, Panzer General Online, and Silent Hunter Online will shut down their servers on October 31st as well.
The tactical shooter Ghost Recon Phantoms will stick around for a little longer than that. Ubisoft is going to pull the plug on December 1st. By the way, the briefly planned Wii U version of the shooter was never released in any shape or form.
