Game cracking group to suspend new cracks to measure impact on sales

Posted on Sunday, February 07 2016 @ 19:39:36 CET by

A couple of weeks ago Chinese game cracking group 3DM claimed new anti-piracy systems like Denuvo are making it much harder to crack games. In fact, the group's leader even predicted that game piracy may be coming to an end within a year or two as it may get too hard to crack games in a timely fashion.

Pirates had high hopes that 3DM would be able to crack Just Cause 3, which is protected by the advanced Denuvo anti-piracy system, but it seems the game may not get a crack at all as 3DM has ceased work on cracks for single-player games.

TorrentFreak reports 3DM is suspending cracks for one year, as part of an experiment to see how the lack of cracks impacts the legitimate market. Bird Sister explains they will look at the situation next year, to see if genuine sales have grown. The explanation seems quite odd so we wonder if there's an ulterior motive.
Taking to her personal blog once more, Bird Sister has just announced an immediate end to the cracking activities of 3DM.

“We just had an internal meeting. Starting at the Chinese New Year, 3DM will not crack any single-player games,” Bird Sister says.

For those wondering, the Chinese New Year is next Monday, February 8.
