Players may not have to use uPlay when playing Watch_Dogs, a recent store page for the title suggests.
GAME’s listing of Watch_Dogs Dedsec Edition refers to players having to use Steam, but does not reference Ubisoft’s own DRM system, uPlay at any point.
Earlier this year, the Ubisoft published South Park: Stick of Truth was also announced as not needing uPlay.
Watch Dogs is slated for release on May 27 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. A Wii U port has been confirmed, but its release date has not been announced.
