Ubisoft Schedules Shut Down of Two F2P Titles
More shutdown news incoming as Ubisoft has announced that two of its free-to-play titles will be shuttered over the coming quarter. The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, the free-to-play tower construction and invasion game, will cease sales of in-game currency immediately and players will have 60 days to use any currency they have currently. The title will shut down on October 25th.
Ghost Recon Phantoms (previously known as Ghost Recon Online) will have a bit more time on the clock for players to get in their final matches but in the end, closure is scheduled for November 31st/December 1st.
Why? You can probably guess. As the Epic Loot official announcement and the Ghost Recon official announcement both state, these games were "not as successful as we had hoped for, so we had to make the decision to close the game. This decision wasn’t easy for us and we tried to find other ways. But in the end we decided to close the game and focus on other projects."
The official posts also state that refunds are not an option, sequels or spin-offs are not currently in the works, and selling off the games or opening them up to player supported versions simply wasn't an option.
If you want to get contact information from friends in game to play other titles with them, hop in game soon as the clock is ticking.

the cash shop for Ghost Recon was awfull, each Ghost Recon's weapons would cost from 20k to 70k or more and you would get about 100 to 200 credits per match, and you couldn't buy just the one you wanted, you have to buy all previous tier, it was like that for everything, secondary, armor, skills... then you needed to buy all the attachments for your weapon, around 10k each if im not mistaken
you like a weapon that isn't tier 7 or more? well, too bad, higher tier were better in almost everything... want to get the max tier weapon? good luck wasting years of your life
also, the matchmaking was abysmal, normally the system wouldn't fill the teams for 90% of the game, would throw you on a match with just a few seconds to finish, get teams with 1 or 2 players only
