Driver: San Francisco DRM Relaxed

The Ubisoft Forums have word that Ubisoft has reconsidered the plan to use their unpopular always-on DRM in Driver: San Francisco, and players will not be required to be connected to the internet to play the upcoming open-world driving action game (thanks Shacknews). Here's the announcement:

We've heard your feedback regarding the permanent internet connection requirement for Driver and have made the decision to no longer include it. So this means that Driver PC gamers will only need to sign in at game launch but can subsequently choose to play the game offline.

Not quite.

Both From Dust and Driver: San Francisco require a internet connection EVERY time you launch the game. (So the DRM still sucks)... but if you lose your internet connection after you launched... you can still play (until you exit... then you need an internet connection again to launch again).

As posted up a few comments, this was changed in From Dust. It now requires an always-on connection. In fact, they're giving refunds last I saw.

No, originally they announced that From Dust would have a one time only online activation. In reality, an internet connection is required every time you start the game, and they have now changed the post on their forums to reflect this (after the game had been released).
