That's an improvement from the original announcement but I notice that they specify story DLC and don't mention all the other DLC content like weapons and armor, both Far Cry and Assassins Creed series have DLC weapons that I'd miss. They also could have done a better job explaining what they mean be "activated", mainly whether it needs to be downloaded and activated to use and can't be downloaded again in the future or if it just needs to be activated once and then can be downloaded again.
Considering it took them a month to post this also makes me think this represents a change in plans and not a clarification of what they already had planned to do. Time is important on these things and a carefully crafted PR response takes 24 hours max while technical changes could easily take oh say a little over a month...
I also makes no sense they would allow people to download and use DLC but only if activated before a certain timeline. If everyone that already bought and played the games has access to the games, why disable it in the first place? The infrastructure is there to continue to supporting the products.
