Rumor: Has Ubisoft relaxed its "Always On" internet PC game DRM?

Earlier this year publisher Ubisoft decided that it would make all of its current and upcoming PC game titles require an "always on" internet connection in order to be played. This DRM set up, which affected even single player-only games like the PC port of Assassin's Creed 2, was met with massive protests by PC gamers.

Now a story posted on Reddit by a gamer claims that the "Always On" requirement has now been relaxed a little bit. While PC gamers will still need to have an active internet connection to start any of the affected Ubisoft games, it looks like the internet connection can now be cut and active games can still be played. Previously if you lost your internet connection during play of titles like Splinter Cell Conviction your gameplay would be interrupted as well. We have emailed Ubisoft to find out if they have indeed relaxed their DRM PC game policies or if this is just a lucky technical glitch.
