    So they're ditching all variants of enforced always-online play, yes or no?

    What are they replacing that with, limited install counts, what?

    It's gotta be something onerous or odious. It's UBI we're talking about after all.

    Yeah, they say that today, and then a few months from now they'll be changing their minds again, spending loads on useless (non)protection that annoys their customers, and talking about how previous comments were "unfortunate".

    Here's a radical idea for you, ubisoft: junk uplay.

    That way you CAN'T get hacked yet again.
