Some people are not huge fans of Uplay, especially those who saw their Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag save disappear into a void for no reason. Those people should be pleased to learn that the Ubisoft-published South Park: The Stick of Truth will not be making use of the platform.
That information comes from developers Obsidian, who first state that “Uplay is not featured in Stick of Truth.”
.@Fool_Wolf @Steam_Support Nope, Uplay is not featured in Stick of Truth

And then go further to clarify that “Uplay was not integrated at all” with the game. So you won’t even be using it optionally.
.@NBego Unfortunately, no. Uplay was not integrated at all into SP:SOT.

That all indicates that South Park: The Stick of Truth will be a Steamworks game only. It’s due for release in early March, unless the curse of Ubisoft PC delays strikes before that time.
