Ubisoft Set To Drop Uplay Client Support For Windows XP

I know a large majority of gamers haven’t moved on to Windows 10, Windows 8 or even Windows 7 for that matter and are still rocking Windows XP. Sure, I get it, Windows XP was rock solid but it’s time to move on folks. Especially since more and more companies are dropping support for aged Microsoft operating system. This time around, Ubisoft is announcing that they will be ceasing support of their Uplay client for Windows XP.

With official support for Windows XP having ended some time ago we have decided to end our support of this now legacy operating system. This will allow us to take advantage of newer technologies moving forward and ensure the highest possible security for our users.

Users currently using Windows XP will still have access to their games; however, they will be unable to receive future Uplay PC client updates once support ends.

If you are one of the few still using Windows XP, we strongly urge you upgrade to a newer, more secure version of Windows at your earliest convenience.

Keep in mind that Microsoft ended Windows XP support on April 8, 2014. That’s over two years ago, and this isn’t the best time to use an outdated OS. Especially with all those viruses and exploits running lose out there. If you haven’t thought about upgrading and are still using Windows XP, maybe now’s the time to revisit that.
