Resident Evil Village: Denuvo Removed After 700 Days

Expert Verified By

Free From The Shackles Of Denuvo!

Denuvo is an anti-piracy solution implemented by some developers into their games to secure them from piracy and cracking. However, many gamers dislike it since it often comes at the expense of performance, making for a worse gaming experience.

Capcom has implemented Denuvo in several of their games, one of them being Resident Evil Village. Now, almost two years after the game’s debut, Capcom has removed the anti-tamper technology.

A new update for Resident Evil Village removes the game’s Denuvo anti-tamper technology, which was also recorded in Steam DB’s change tracker.

Capcom has been known for removing Denuvo from several old titles, including Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake.

When Resident Evil Village was released in May of 2021, several users complained about performance issues in the game and pointed to Denuvo as the cause. As a result, some people boycotted the game because of the presence of Denuvo.

These claims were further solidified when a cracked version of Resident Evil Village without Denuvo outperformed the original game with Denuvo in performance by a wide margin.

Now that Denuvo has been removed from the game, this might encourage those who decided to ditch the game due to Denuvo.

However, despite all of this, Resident Evil Village has sold more than 7 million units worldwide, becoming one of the best-performing Resident Evil games in recent years.

On that note, what do you think about Capcom removing Denuvo from Resident Evil Village? Will you try the game now that Denuvo has been removed?
