Thinking about this more, this is an interesting move. This is a big budget release, right? Ubisoft will be investing many millions of dollars in this game and it appears they're making a real effort the PC, with DX11 stuff and such like and more importantly, relatively simple DRM.

It looks like they've looked at the games market and have decided to give a PC game a real go. If they do deliver then I certainly wish them the best because future games, from Ubisoft and beyond, will be designed with its success in mind.

Or they could phone it in, lie about the DRM and whine about it getting pirated.
