Denuvo anti-tamper tech is a solution used by a number of game developers and publishers to protect the titles against piracy but it seems that the program has failed to achieve its core objective, once again.
The anti-tamper tech Denuvo was established in 2015 with the aim to fight against piracy of video games on PC but almost all the games protected by the solution has been cracked by multiple hacking groups. Recently, the solution got updated with the new version 4.9 but it was cracked again as F1 2018 came with the newer version of Denuvo and it was hacked by a group successfully.
The newer version protected a couple of other triple A games such as Yakuza 0, Monster Hunter World, Dragon Quest XI and Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PC and seems that these titles are about to get cracked as well.
Since the new version has been cracked, it can be said that the company will have to work on its code again and update the version in order to stop the titles from getting cracked, again. In July, Denuvo reached out to Bulgarian authorities and filed a case against Voksi who is known to bypass a couple of anti-tamper tech protected titles. The authorities took his server and PC for the investigation and later, Voksi confirmed that he will not bypass the protected games again.
But there are more hackers and even hacking groups who will try their best to crack or bypass the anti-tamper protection. A new title, Two Point Hospital was launched last month and just 6 days after its release, the game was successfully cracked and the developers had to remove the Denuvo protection.
Since the latest version has been cracked, we can expect the downloadable links for the new titles such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Monster Hunter World soon. Let’s see happens in the coming days. Stay tuned for more updates!
