Ubisoft Abandons Ridiculous PC DRM


RockPaperShotgun conducted a recent interview with Ubisoft's worldwide director for online games, Stephanie Perotti, as well as their paid mouthpiece corporate communications director, Michael Burk, confirming that Ubisoft's stupid DRM system for their PC games is no more.

Whilst you should absolutely read the interview itself, because it's quite telling in how they still seem to believe it was a success and somehow prevented piracy but at the same time are removing it, it's still good news for PC gamers.

I have unashamedly beat the drum over this issue for the past couple of years, and have refused to buy any Ubisoft game on principle whilst the policy was in place.  Now that it's gone, perhaps I can finally get around to picking up some of the earlier Assassin's Creed games in a Steam sale or suchlike.
