Ubisoft updates PC DRM, claims it wasn't cracked

Despite reports last night that Ubisoft's PC DRM has been cracked, the arrogant European publisher has maintained that its unwarranted and unfair punishment of paying customers is still currently foolproof. It's not all bad though! Ubisoft has updated the DRM so that if your Internet connection drops and the game boots you, it will always start at the point of kickery once the game goes back online. How thoughtful of them.

DRM v1.1 has been created, even though the original DRM hadn't been released yet. This is likely thanks to the massive amount of backlash Ubisoft received, although simply fixing a fraction of the problem won't stem the tide of well-deserved hatred. Still, Ubisoft doesn't mind, because it still believes its DRM is an unbreakable fortress.

“You have probably seen rumors on the web that Assassin’s Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 have been cracked," states Ubi. "Please know that this rumor 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."

Here's the thing though, Ubi. You know it will be cracked eventually. It's just a matter of time. All this supposed DRM does is f*ck with paying consumers who have entrusted their money to a publisher and are having to meet further demands in order to play what they just bought. So sure, that DRM crack may not have happened yet, but nobody can argue that when it does come, and it will, Ubisoft won't have asked for it with this nonsense.
