If you didn't know the frustration of Ubisoft's Uplay Passport, maybe you never will since the company has canned it. It was a one-time-use code that gave gamers access to online features, but from here on out, it will not be featured in any titles.

The first title from Ubisoft to not feature Uplay Passport will be the upcoming sure fire hit, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Ubisoft has said: "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 confirmed that Uplay resulted in Black Flag gamers being restricted the single-player portion of the game's fleet management system, which isn't good.
