Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios, publisher and developers of the action, sci-fi title Homefront The Revolution have decided to end the Denuvo protection from their game.
Homefront The Revolution received a new update, adding support for the DLC Beyond The Walls along with a number of bugs fixes and improvements to the game. According to the Steam page update, the patch has removed the support for Denuvo anti-tamper tech from the game. The developer studio is yet to provide patch notes of this update.
Interestingly, Dambuster joins the list of other game developers removing Denuvo anti-tamper tech from their game after a certain time period. Previously, id Software and Crytek also removed the Denuvo protection from Climb and DOOM.
Denuvo is a tool used by PC game developers and publishers as their digital rights management (DRM) to protect their content from the pirates. Piracy is one of the major concerns for the developers and still needs to addressed since Denuvo appears to be ineffective lately. Most of the famous Denuvo protected titles are either bypassed or cracked by the hacking groups and are easily accessible.
While some other upcoming titles such as Mass Effect: Andromeda, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, Syberia 3 and Dead Rising 4 Steam version will be protected by the Denuvo anti-tamper technology. Lets see how the company revises its strategy improve the protection with covering all of its loopholes.
