French publishing giant Ubisoft has confirmed that people who already own Assassin's Creed Liberation HD will still be able to play and redownload the game once it is removed from Steam.

The company released a statement yesterday – reported by Eurogamer – saying that the title would still be playable after it its servers get taken down on September 1st. The notice on Liberation HD's Steam page has now been updated to reflect this change.

"As stated in our support article, only DLCs and online features will be affected by the upcoming decommissioning," Ubisoft wrote.

"Current owners of those games will still be able to access, play or redownload them. Our teams are working with our partners to update this information across all storefronts and are also assessing all available options for players who will be impacted when these games’ online services are decommissioned on September 1st, 2022.

"It has always been our intention to do everything in our power to allow those legacy titles to remain available in the best possible conditions for players, and this is what we are working towards."

This follows Ubisoft moving to kill live services for a number of its games from 2009 until 2019.
