Isn't this the same old story with Ubisoft? They put in draconian DRM then a couple weeks later they say "OOOPS! Sorry folks! It'll be removed with a patch soon enough." as if that will pacify the sheeple.
At this point I'm convinced they actually plan this "apology" out in advance as damage control for the launch day DRM bullshit.
No. They still haven't removed that crap from Settlers 7. As as the post below indicates, Silent Hunter either. Guess the outcry wasn't big enough for those games.
I mean come on, most of the sales are made after the first month or 2. Ubi obviously thinks most are made even after 2 weeks with From Dust, either that or they just want to delay a couple days before the crack hits so people desperate for the game on release will buy it.
The game was already cracked before it came out. I'm sure using the DRM in an attempt to delay that happening and preserve the release day sales is part of their strategy, but it obviously doesn't work.
