Cracking Denuvo DRM is now taking mere hours

How the mighty have fallen. Not that long ago pirates considered Denuvo to be almost unbreakable, but these days the state-of-the-art piracy protection is getting cracked in record time.

Previously, it took crackers weeks or even months to defeat the Denuvo protection, but now an increasing number of games are getting cracked within a day of their launch. Up until a couple of months ago, Denuvo was a useful tool for game developers as it could keep games safe from piracy during the crucial initial sales window, but this is no longer the case:
This week's release of South Park: The Fractured but Whole is the latest to see its protections broken less than 24 hours after its release, but it's not alone. Middle Earth: Shadow of War was broken within a day last week, and last month saw cracks for Total War: Warhammer 2 and FIFA 18 the very same day as their public release. Then there's The Evil Within 2, which reportedly used Denuvo in prerelease review copies but then launched without that protection last week, effectively ceding the game to immediate potential piracy.
