Ubisoft Closing Online Services For Just Dance 2018 On Wii And Other Legacy Platforms

Ubisoft has confirmed that it is set to close online service for legacy versions of Just Dance 2018 and prior versions. That includes the Wii and Wii U versions of the game. As you know, the company recently released Just Dance 2019 and that will remain unaffected if you have the Wii or Wii U versions of the game. The online services for just Dance 2018 and below will close on the 19th November 2018. Here’s a statement from Ubisoft:

“We are constantly assessing what’s needed to deliver the best possible online services for Ubisoft’s customers. Shutting the services for some older games with smaller online audiences is a necessary part of this process, since it allows our IT and service staff to better focus on delivering great online experiences to the vast majority of customers who are playing newer, more popular titles. Still, we don’t take the decision to retire services for older Ubisoft games lightly, and we understand some of you may be disappointed by this news. We are happy to have fans that are as committed as you have been to these brands and titles, and we hope that you’ll find more recent or upcoming Ubisoft games which you can be equally as passionate about. Thank you for your understanding and your support.”

  1. And yes, they really still do release Just Dance games on the Wii, not to mention the Xbox 360, which is even older.

    1. What even is the point anymore. Nintendo and Microsoft don’t even manufacture those consoles anymore.

      1. Yeah, honestly they should just sell the Just Dance games on current gen consoles and forget about last gen.

        They’d probably be able to add more modes and songs for the game if they did that.

  2. This is why single player is still extremely important for games with online multiplayer. Unless I’m mistaken, the problem with GTA5 is the online content is more expansive than even the offline, single player content. One day all of that content is gonna be unusable when Rockstar eventually closes the servers for GTA5 down. Hopefully they’ll make all of that online content work for offline mode in the single player mode for when that day comes so anyone that spent hundreds of dollars on that content don’t get ripped off in the long run; if that content isn’t already able to be used in offline mode, but I’m pretty sure it’s not and is only exclusive to online.) (Whenever I get around to playing my digital copy of the game, I’m gonna steer clear of any DLC that is for the online mode.)

  3. if i want to play the stuff i like then i have to save up for a new console to be able to play world dance floor because i like to see if i can get the leaderboard on Just Dance. so i’ll have to sell or trade in my old games and buy new games and that is annoying to me.
