Last year, Rockstar games teased and announced a sequel of the famous action, adventure franchise, the Red Dead Redemption 2. An announcement trailer was revealed and the developers confirmed a Fall 2017 release for both the current-gen consoles, while no sign of the PC version was mentioned.
The announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 left PC gamers in a grief since the previous installment in the franchise also had similar destiny. However, it appears that the studio might be working on the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 and the title will be protected by Denuvo anti-tamper tech.
A database leak from the one of the biggest anti-piracy company, the Denuvo digital rights management (DRM) suggest that Rockstar games will be using its services to protect the Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC from the pirates.
Many game developers, including EA, Biohazard have been using Denuvo DRM for their protection, but the anti-tamper tech seems to be fading away as almost all the major titles protected by the company were cracked and bypassed, including the newly released Resident Evil 7 which was cracked within the first 5 days of its release.
After the recent blunders and a number of game cracks, Denuvo clarified its position that the company’s service is difficult to crack, but not impossible. While recently, it was revealed that the company will be revising its technology to gain the trust of the developers again.
Let’s see how things go in the coming months and we might actually get one of the most anticipated game of this year on PC. Rockstar Games is yet to announce the official PC release of the game.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for Fall 2017 release for PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
