Ubisoft has just announced a new service called Ubisoft Connect. Born from the combination of Uplay and the Ubisoft Club, this new service will support cross-saves and cross-play with their future titles.
Ubisoft states the service is an
ecosystem of players services for Ubisoft games across all platforms.
This new service will kick off with the release of Watch Dogs:Legion, launching this October.
For our newest releases, all your game progression is saved within Ubisoft Connect, so you won't lose a step if you change consoles or switch to PC.https://t.co/NwEPW7ZUEk

Available to anyone who plays Ubisoft games. This free service really acts as the joining together of all of the company’s previous services. Consolidating everything into a single, unified branch in preparation for next-gen. Ubisoft will essentially break down the barriers between platforms and will even allow social interactions.
It’s an understatement to recognize just how cool the cross-progression aspect really is. Any progress made on a platform will save to the service. Meaning, you could theoretically play Assassin’s Creed on PC and then pick up right where you left off at on PlayStation 5. No matter what platform you’re on you’re covered between progression and gaming with others.
And those who have already poured in time to build up their Ubisoft credits are covered. Rest assured the loyalty program will also carry over into this new service. Meaning whatever you’ve earned from the Ubisoft Club will just come over to Ubisoft connect.
Ubisoft also states that their goal is to support cross-play for most of its multiplayer. Starting today, Ubisoft plans to commemorate this launch by making more than 1,000 legacy Ubisoft Club rewards at no cost for players.
Ubisoft Connect will support PC, Xbox One, and Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Switch, Stadia, iOS, Android, and web on October 29th.
