Well, Microsoft dropped the always-online thingy a few days ago, but it seems that a few developers still implement this “feature” in games. Today, Ubisoft announced that their latest two games The Division and The Crew will require a permanent internet connection in order to play.
Why? Well, they say that always-online “is a must” because something “is happening in this world all the time”. “It’s a non-stopping world, which is like life. You’re getting closer to life.” they said.
This means that this time always-online requirement will bring something new and exclusive to The Crew and The Division, or at least they claim so.
