Two prominent titles were released from the controversial file protection, some time after they had been hacked and pirated
Quite a few players are strongly opposed to game file protections, especially when titles are hacked by groups Piracy - so that the existing (apparent) disadvantages of those mechanisms DRM Continue to affect consumers who purchased the product at their best, without preventing piracy enthusiasts from accessing the product.
In recent years, we have encountered a number of situations in which distributors have chosen to remove in retrospect the most common defense mechanism in the gaming market today Denuvo, And we have even received rumors that the company is offering relative compensation to game makers who have not been protected for a reasonable amount of time against the pirates. Now the pair of titles Hitman 2 and Resident Evil 7 are joining this list - and may be swept away by other pieces to make a similar move.
Denuvo has failed miserably in delaying Hitman 2's pirated distribution attempts - and is now gone, just months after launch
These two games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Capcom respectively, are prominent examples that incorporating advanced file protections does not necessarily guarantee peace of mind - Resident Evil VII was released two years ago in less than a week of its official launch as the first major 2017 title, while Hitman 2 was even more damaged a few months ago. When we broke out even before its official commercial launch. These are not achievements inDenuvo They would be happy to be proud of them in public, no doubt.
Parallel to removing the Resident Evil 7 defenses, the CODEX breakout group was able to crack the latest version of the defense by Denuvo, Which was unofficially dubbed version 5.5 - and so pirated on the network was also the resume of Resident Evil 2, so it looks like the race and fight between defenders and attackers will continue in full force even in 2019, and distributors such as Capcom will continue to be a dilemma whether to keep or give up the defense. Denuvo After the titles were hacked and distributed free of charge to anyone, when removal of the mechanism may be a tailwind to the lawbreakers, while retaining it will affect, as noted above, primarily those who purchased the work legally and standard.
