As AfterDawn has reported repeatedly, Ubisoft is one of a couple of companies who employs an "always-connected" DRM, which means you must always be connected to the Internet to play their games.
While online play will be down for mostly all Ubisoft games until the migration is done, games with the DRM like "the Mac OS X version of the original Assassin's Creed, however, will be completely unplayable, as will the OSX version of Splinter Cell: Conviction and the PC versions of Might and Magic: Heroes VI and Tom Clancy's HAWX 2," says Joystiq.
Yes, that means even the single player versions of the games will be unplayable. Pirates will be able to play the games, however.
There is no accurate timetable for the migration.
