View Full Version : ANNO 2070 DRM - community statement

Dear Anno Players,

We’ve seen many questions and statements being made lately on the activation system of Anno 2070, in reaction to an article posted onGuru3D (http://www.guru3d.com/news/why-guru3d-probably-never-will-review-ubisoft-titles-anymore/).

Essentially, many of you are saying that the system will use an activation each time you change a graphic card or motherboard. We acknowledge that this is the case, and that this may be an issue for those of you who make frequent hardware changes to multiple PCs. If this applies to you, we invite you to contact our customer support after upgrading your PC. Ubisoft customer service can effectively deal with such queries, and can be reached at http://support.ubi.com (http://support.ubi.com/)

The situation described in the Guru3D article is a rare one; installing the game on three different PCs and making multiple hardware modifications in a single day is a scenario that is unlikely for the vast majority of Anno players. We apologize for the experience Guru3D had with the game, and have already taken steps to ensure that they can continue to test their systems using Anno.

Anno 2070 is a very important product to us and we sincerely worked to provide an activation system that helps prevent piracy while being fair to players. We appreciate your feedback and understanding
