Denuvo Removed From Doom After Game Gets Cracked

It's not surprising that Bethesda would remove Denuvo from DOOM after its been cracked because it is obviously of no use now. What is surprising is that, if this story is to be believed, the reason behind the removal might have been a refund clause, not just the fact that the piracy protection has been cracked.

In an unexpected move, the infamous anti-piracy technology Denuvo has been removed from the PC version of Doom. The development follows a similar move last month when developer Playdead removed Denuvo from its game 'Inside'. Did a refund clause in the Denuvo deal trigger these removals?
