UbisoftUbisoft has taken a lot of (justifiable) heat for its decision to introduce DRM protection for their PC titles that requires a constant internet connection in order to play the games it's designed to protect. Well, the situation didn't get any help over the weekend when Ubisoft’s servers were hacked, preventing a number of Assassin’s Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 players from accessing their games.

Ubisoft responded via Twitter shortly after complaints started rolling in saying that "95% of players were not affected, but a small group of players attempting to open a game session did receive denial of service errors.”

A few hours later, Ubisoft posted another update, explaining, “We're happy to say ACII & SH5 are withstanding the efforts to crack them. We see the rumors but still confirm no valid cracked versions exist.”

The latest word from Ubisoft is that their servers are "under attack again,” and that "some gamers are experiencing trouble signing in. We’re working on it and will keep you posted."

Clearly, this whole ordeal has a ways to go before it's resolved, and I'm currently waiting to hear back from Ubisoft, so stay tuned.
