Steam removing games with Ubisoft’s DRM
Valve is beginning to drop titles from the Steam store that are afflicted with Ubisoft’s new DRM.
According to VG247, among the removed games are Assassins Creed 2 and Silent Hunter V- links to the (recently removed) store pages can be found here and here. According to a senior representative from Valve, it is an attempt to save face over “its reputation for customer service, and these games have angered its user-base.”
The new DRM system has been plagued with issues so far already, with Ubi’s servers going down after being attacked by malicious hackers.
