But while at least one analyst at the company wants to get in front of any fires, can a significant publisher announcing it's going to focus more on "free-to-play" titles be read as anything other than major news?

It may not be the Creed of an Assassin, but good Watch Dogs know it's a Far Cry from an empty change...in Virtual Legality.
