Ubisoft Is Saying Goodbye To Always-On DRM

Posted on September 5, 2012 by Seung Lee

PC gamers will be relieved to hear that Ubisoft is finally dropping its always-on digital rights management. If you remember Diablo III, that game required players to always be connected to the Internet in order to play. Ubisoft’s PC games will no longer be like that. Instead, Stephanie Perotti, Ubisoft’s worldwide director for online games, told Rock, Paper, Shotgun in an interview that all future titles will come with a “one-time online activation when you first install the game, and from then you are free to play the game offline.”

It may seem like a strange decision for Ubisoft, especially considering that the company’s PC games currently have a 93-95% piracy rate. Then again, perhaps the voices of disappointed gamers around the world finally managed to reach the higher-ups’ ears. After all, people will always find a way to sneak past things like DRM. All it did was annoy the people who actually bought the games.
