Rumour: Ubisoft's DRM Cracked Already

If this is a surprise for anyone, I guess it should be Ubisoft that’s surprised. The polemical DRM “anti-piracy” system that obliges the player to be online in order to play, has been seemingly cracked.

The movement was highly criticized. One of the most raised issues was that, in the end, the “legal” users were going to be the ones to pay and live with the nuisance.

In all this, Ubisoft had the courage to come out with a press statement denying that there is a DRM free version in the Internet:
“You have probably seen rumours on the web that Assassin’s Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 have been cracked, Please know that this rumour is false and while a pirated version may seem to be complete at start up, any gamer who downloads and plays a cracked version will find that their version is not complete.”
The only thing I still don’t get is how on earth did they not see this one coming? Everyone else did. Ubisoft’s reality has clashed with reality…
