On both Reddit and Ubisoft’s own forum, people have mentioned this issue affecting their accounts. After further digging users have noticed that the games that were removed had been purchased from third-party digital software sellers including eBay, G2Play, and G2A.

It is currently unknown if these games will be refunded

This is a cold reminder of the state in which the purchasing of any media exists. You are never able to truly buy a game. All you ever do is simply lease the game from the publisher. They maintain all the rights to a game, and you simply pay them for the access to play it.

For example, if you are to purchase a game through Steam and you break one of their policies, they have the right to ban you, deactivation your account and locking you out of any purchased games on their service. Since you simply leased the games and never had the opportunity to buy them, they have no obligation to refund you any money you spent on games.
