Copies of Far Cry 4 that were downloaded and played before deactivation could be reactivated.
More news in the ongoing Ubisoft game key debacle. Ubisoft are reactivating some Far Cry 4 keys they deactivated when the whole fraudulent game key selling came to light.
The publishers will be restoring the Far Cry 4 keys for players that had already downloaded and played the game, before the keys were subsequently deactivated.
Speaking to GameInformer, an Ubisoft representative said, "After further investigation into the matter of keys that were fraudulently purchased on EA’s Origin store, we are reinstating keys for consumers who already had successfully activated and started playing the games."
"Any remaining fraudulently obtained and resold keys have been deactivated.”
The fraudulent game keys were found to have originated from EA's Origin platform, and Ubisoft say they are working with EA to prevent this happening again.
“We are working with EA to prevent situations like this from happening again, and we will continue to deactivate keys that are found to be fraudulently obtained and resold,” Ubisoft said.
“We strongly recommend that players purchase keys and downloadable games only from the Uplay shop or trusted retailers.”
Players began to notice Ubisoft keys were being deactivated last week.
