The latest news is coming from gtaforums where they confirmed moments ago that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, which will be exclusively available via Steam- will use the new Denuvo DRM, which is the same protection used in games such as FIFA 15 and Lords of The Fallen. For those who don’t know, none of these games has been cracked till now.

GTA V Won’t Get a Pirated Version; Denuvo DRM Technology Used

Attention Pirates: Grand Theft Auto V PC Version to Use the Denuvo DRM, Same Protection as FIFA 15

As discussed in some forums previously, the DRM appears to affect the gaming performance, especially in Lords of the Fallen. Although at this moment, we cannot say anything for sure, because, obviously, the games were not cracked and there is no way to compare if crashes or general poor performance on some PCs is caused by such protection. I have played both games without any problem, so perhaps the problem lies within the game. And it doesn’t really make sense that the anti-piracy technology actually affects the performance of the game.

Although FIFA 15 was released on September 23 and Lords of The Fallen makes its way one week later. Till now there are lots of groups, who try to break that protection, but still no success. And if they fail till January 27 (release date of GTA V) then pirates party would have to save some bucks for the game as the most  anticipated game is on the way.

The game was released on the 17th of September, 2013 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and is scheduled to be released on the 18th of November, 2014 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on January 27th, 2015 on the PC.
