Please let this not be the future of gaming as we know it. I like normal offline single player games. All of this seems like a immersion killer. Please let them keep this crap away from Deus ex.

Persistent online game is another word for sneaky drm.

Agreed...

with new management, I though things would be different.

They makes games nobody ask for, and doesn't make games gamers ask for.

This is becoming a new trend to try and subtly sneak in always-online DRM under the guise of "persistent" and "living" worlds. Bull****. Publishers are trying to transform games from a product (that you own) to a service that you rent from them, until their servers see less activity and are invariably turned off.

This is the future of gaming at stake people. What is the point of protesting the Xbox One's always-online DRM if the games are going to do it anyway? Does anybody wonder why "persistence" and "open-world" are suddenly so common this upcoming gen (Destiny, Titanfall, The Division, The Crew, Watch Dogs, etc.)? It is not a coincidence; they are trying to take away your ownership rights and to fleece you.

Time to make our voices heard and to vote with our wallets. Enough is enough.

Watchdogs aswell? Well guess im skipping that, im not gonna support such shady practices.

Watch dogs is not always online, ubisoft confirmed that themselves.

You can play watch dogs without an internet connection. Its not an mmo like destiny or the division. Titanfall is online only, there is no single player. If you buy an mmo or online only multiplayer gane, expect to need to be always connected.

I'm glad I'm not the only who was thinking this way. The flood of MMOs or MMO like games was the 1st sign and I'm really not to impressed.

I have a bad feeling about this, please don't fuck up the Sleeping Dogs sequel if they ever make one by turning it into some lame ass MMORPG

I bet money that ff XIII-3 Will flop In United State and Europe just like FFIII-2. Games like Hitman, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Tomb Raider, Sleeping dogs is keeping Square Enix name alive. Can't wait for ff x hd to come out.

I said a while back that they have turned into a rather decent publishing house but have moved away from being a decent games developer.

Anytime i see a story starting with SQUARE ENIX... i get my hopes up thinking its the FFX HD release date announcement :(

I think most of the credit goes to Steam for making Sleeping dogs Profitable with its continuous support to it , The Latest sale was the game for 6$
