Not great news for Denuvo as the firm advertises its DRM technology on the basis of being able to protect games against piracy in the the critical launch window.
As the group noted, Hitman 2 uses Denuvo 5.3. So yeah, it appears that the video-games cracking groups have figured out a way to crack the latest versions of Denuvo in just a matter of hours or days. And that’s a really big blow for the company that has been advertised its anti-tamper tech as the safest way to guarantee the first week sales.Via: DSO Gaming
It remains to be seen whether IO Interactive will remove Denuvo. Let’s not forget that the team immediately removed this anti-tamper tech once it acquired the IP rights from Square Enix.
