Publisher Ubisoft has revealed that the servers set-up to facilitate its new PC game DRM strategy are once again under attack in what many are presuming is a further protest against its anti-piracy measures.
Players of both Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 – the first two games from Ubisoft to require constant online validation to play in single player – faced disruption over the weekend after a server attack prevented some from loading or installing their titles.
Yesterday, Ubisoft admitted via its Twitter feed that: Our servers are under attack again. Some gamers are experiencing trouble signing in. We're working on it and will keep you posted.”
It's yet another embarrassing twist in what had been a turbulent tale for Ubisoft ever since it first announced its new DRM policy.
