|C downloads centre Steam appears to have removed Ubisoft titles Assassin's Creed 2 and Silent Hunter V from its service in the UK. CVG understands an objection to the DRM measures of both titles is the reason behind the decision.|
AC2 was originally available to download here, while Silent Hunter V could be obtained here.
However, both game download pages now read 'Sorry! An error was encountered while processing your request: This item is currently unavailable in your region'
A PC games industry insider told us this morning: "It's the latest in the Ubisoft DRM blow-up. Steam doesn't want to lose its reputation for customer service, and these games have angered its user-base."
