Ubisoft DRM “vital” to games’ success

Ubisoft sees the use of its digital rights management system as a “vital” component to protecting and ensuring the success of their PC software, according to Splinter Cell: Conviction creative director Maxime Beland.

“We consider that protecting our PC games is vital to our business and will allow us to continue investing in the development of creative and innovative games on the PC platform,” he told VG247 in a recent Conviction-related interview.

More signs that the troubled always-connected DRM is here to stay, then.

Like other recent Ubisoft titles, the slightly delayed PC version of Conviction will make of use of the same system.
