S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Always-on DRM?

This Russian report seems to indicate that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 may require a persistent internet connection to play. Here is a rough machine translation of the answer to a question about DRM in GSC Game World's upcoming first-person shooter sequel: "Protection from piracy? Part of the content will be located on the server and downloaded as the game progresses. We need constant access to the Internet. Will finish the text information, code and maximum game. Software piracy hurts us to beat, we fight with him, but in moderation. If people can not buy a licensed version, it is to our advantage, so he bought a pirate, and then wanted to buy a license. In Ukraine, there are different products that people love so much that he buys a license in principle. We want to create just such a product." Thanks RPS via Kotaku Aus/GSC.

Actually none of my games are pirated. As a legitimate buying consumer I can tell you why always on DRM is a bad idea:...

I'll concede that a flakey connection can be a problem but you know what? People have a choice. Like if gaming is a really important hobby to anyone they could move to a place with better connectivity. If they don't want to move, well, don't buy always-on games. Simple. But puhlease. STFU and stop complaining. It's like someone living in the Rocky Mountains whining that they can't go wave boarding.
All of the other issues are the usual FUD-infested arguments where the likelihood of any such event is in the sub 1% regions. Might as well argue that no one should buy hard drives because they can fail. Everything can fail. Every company might go bankrupt leaving you with no legal resort in case of any problem with the service or product you bought.

People (not necessarily you, Freguson, as I do believe you if you say that you buy all your games) like to exaggerate this stuff greatly for fear mongering purposes just to support piracy-friendly DRM on games or DRM-free games altogether. As I said: It's pure FUD tactics usually from the typical "interested parties".
