Assassin’s Creed Origins was released on October 27, 2017, so its protection layer kept the game safe from piracy for over three month. The game uses Denuvo 4.8 but the same-name company already has version 5.0. That version will be used by Far Cry 5.
It’s also worth pointing out that Denuvo has already released a new version of its anti-tamper tech, Denuvo 5.0. This version has already been used in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and future titles – like Far Cry 5 – will most likely be using it.
The good news for Ubisoft and Denuvo is that this combination was able to protect the game’s sales for more than three months. Now if Denuvo 5.0 is as hard to crack as Denuvo 4.8, the companies may also be able to protect their future games for the next two months at least.
