https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/help/gameplay/article/decommissioning-of-o... Any gamer born in the 2000's or earlier has more than likely played a Ubisoft game that left an impression on them, from Rainbow Six, to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, to Assassin's Creed, to Far Cry Ubisoft has made foreign or distant ways of life and histories relatable to the common gamer, however, it seems that they are no longer interested in preserving the fullness of their legacy, and would rather throw it away when it is convenient to them.

Basically, PC players are about to lose access to DLCs that they bought and OWNED with Ubisoft games that they own, as well as not be able to access Uplay exclusive weapons, content, and levels of those games. The multiplayer will be shut down as well. Console players won't be able to play multiplayer or access Uplay content, which means no Uplay exclusive guns on stuff like Splinter Cell Conviction or Blacklist for Xbox or PC players.

There should be an outrage and this can be reversed if the outcry is big enough. Microsoft reversed their decision to price up Gold and Sony reversed the decision to take the PS3 and Vita storefronts offline last year after backlash, this can absolutely be reversed if the same happens here. Use your voice and make your discontent known across platforms like Twitter, Facebook, etc, but don't cross lines and be civil. Don't go making threats of violence or emailing death threats to people affiliated with Ubisoft, after all, these are still ultimately just video games we are talking about, nobody deserves to have their life threatened over something so ridiculous and I'm sure that no one person is individually responsible for this decision. Use your humanity and common sense.
Affected games of importance:
Assassin's Creed II
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Assassin's Creed Revelations
Assassin's Creed III
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD
Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Possibly Splinter Cell: Conviction
Driver San Francisco
Rayman Legends

I'm not outraged because it costs money to keep those servers up. If they're not being used very much, if at all, then why keep them? It was bound to happen at some point. I expected it sooner than now, honestly.
