Ubisoft are dropping achievements from Ubisoft Connect for PC
The change was confirmed by a Ubisoft support staff member in a forum post created by a user who was wondering whether the removal was a bug. The representative said the following on the matter:
“Achievements are not not available for this title on PC, and this is an intended change. Instead of Achievements for new games on Ubisoft Connect, instead we have expanded the Challenges, which provide XP and other rewards in Ubisoft Connect.
We know that this is a big change for a lot of you, and we appreciate your understanding in the matter.”
This a huge change as achievements have been a staple of the Uplay launcher, which has now been done away with for a new service called Ubisoft Connect.
Removal of achievements is obviously not a good change, but they weren’t a fundamental part of Ubisoft games. They came as part of three services that offered content outside the game, which includes challenges and rewards. As far as we are aware, Ubisoft intend to keep setting weekly missions for the community and are still going to offer rewards for those with points to spend.
It is likely future titles will drop achievements.
