Ubisoft plays down DRM "hack" rumours

Pirate downloads "not complete".

Ubisoft has responded to claims that its new internet-linked DRM system has been compromised, saying that pirates downloading cracked versions of Silent Hunter 5 and Assassin's Creed 2 will be getting a game that is "not complete".

"You have probably seen rumours on the web that Assassinís Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 have been cracked," Ubisoft's statement reads. "Please know that this rumour 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."

A truncated form of the statement has also shown up on Ubisoft's official Twitter feed, flagged up as "rumour control".
