‘Ghost Recon Phantoms’, ‘The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot’ Latest News & Updates: Ubisoft Shuts Down Both Free Games in the Fall
Ubisoft Singapore will be shutting down to free-to-play games by the Fall. The two games permanently going offline are “Ghost Recon Phantoms” and “The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot”.
“The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot” will be the first one to go on the blink, set for October 25, 2016. The game failed to live up to par, the prime reason that Ubisoft Singapore has decided to shut it down.
“Ghost Recon Phantoms” pretty much followed the same way as the company tried its best to build on the game but the efforts to widen its coverage simply failed to pan out. The servers will formally go offline on December 1, 2016.
“Ghost Recon Phantom” will still be playable until the said date though some game features have already been disabled. This includes the in-game shops which will no longer allow players to buy virtual currency.
Players who still have balances on their accounts will, unfortunately, have no more use for their balance. Ubisoft is not reportedly offering refunds and will not offer any conversion of the Phantom credits to other games since this would be against the terms of service.
Despite the bad news, Ubisoft may not be laying off some workers on their end. As mentioned in their FAQ section, most of the employees under the two game titles have already been disseminated to other new projects of the company.
"This decision wasn't easy for us and we tried to find other ways. But in the end, we decided to close the game and focus on other projects."
Focus on new PC and console game
Back in March, Ubisoft did announce that they had plans to come up with a big new PC and console game. The official title/s have yet to be revealed though the attention has obviously been diverted to it as we speak.
