Ubisoft Says its DRM Strategy is a ‘Success’

Speaking to PC Gamer in response to the recent news that the Windows PC version of Driver: San Francisco would feature an "always on" DRM scheme, Ubisoft said that its solution have proven to be very successful for the company.

An unnamed Ubisoft representative admitted to PC Gamer that it has seen "a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success."

Driver: San Francisco is out on August 30 in the US, and September 2 in Europe.

As we mentioned earlier today Driver San Francisco is just one of many PC games released by Ubisoft with "always on" DRM, and while the company is deciding on a "case-by-case" basis which titles will carry this type of DRM scheme, it is still disconcerting to gamers who have had to suffer under the yoke of that system.
