Today Ubisoft inadvertently kicked off a new controversy surrounding digital media ownership rights (e.g., when you buy a game on Xbox LIVE, PS Store, or Steam, you don't own the game--you own the rights to access the game). Steam listings confirm that Ubisoft has plans to remove ownership access to two particular games, Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Silent Hunter 5.

Both games have now been delisted from Steam and cannot be purchased on the platform, but not before the wide Steam Summer Sale discounted both products (Google searches show that Liberation HD and Silent Hunter 5 were sold for 75% off). It's also worth noting that Assassin's Creed III, which will also be shut down on September 2022, has been delisted too. Current owners will have a two-month grace period to play the games. After September 1, 2022, the games will be unplayable and revoked from your digital library.

  • Notice: At the request of the publisher, Assassin's Creed® Liberation HD is no longer available for sale on Steam.
  • Notice: Please note this title will not be accessible following September 1st, 2022

Ubisoft had previously confirmed it planned to shut down Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and that Assassin's Creed III would have "no access to DLC" starting September 1.

Now the only way to get AC Liberation is to buy the Assassin's Creed III Remaster.
