Took them long enough, but publisher Ubisoft finally decided to scrap its much criticized always-on DRM scheme, which frequently caused massive complaints from PC users. Basically, users couldn't log into their PC games without a constant Internet connection and if the connection got lost during the game, players would often be left without saved progress.
Today, Stephanie Perlotti, Ubisoft's worldwide director for online games stated that the company is going to require one-off online activation for their PC games (in addition to no limits on installation and on how many PCs the game can be launched).
"We have listened to feedback, and since June last year our policy for all
of PC games is that we only require a one-time online activation when you first
install the game, and from then you are free to play the game offline," said
the Italian football manager (sorry, I just had to write that,
even though it sounds ridiculous).
They've already dropped the 'Constant Internet Connection' system a while back, but they've just officially confirmed that they won't be returning to that particular scheme (never say, never, eh?).
