Resident Evil 7: Denuvo Anti-Tamper Tech Cracked In Less Than Five Days

Capcom might as well remove Denuvo from Biohazard now. Resident Evil 7 adopted the latest and greatest version of the anti-piracy "solution," but it was owned in just a couple of days. How will the Denuvo guys downplay this one? The last time they were in the news, they claimed their software still "did its job" because it wasn’t cracked until laterآ—but I don’t see how that excuse will fly here.

Denuvo seemed like the perfect tool for developers to protect their games. And to be honest, Denuvo actually worked as the first games that were powered by it remained uncracked for several months. However, things have changed. The latest version of Denuvo that was used in Resident Evil 7 has been cracked in less than five days. This basically means that all Denuvo games may be cracked (in the coming months), and that future games protected by it may be cracked in a matter of days. This is big blow to all publishers who invested in this anti-tamper tech. On the other hand, this will please a number of PC gamers who boycotted games that were protected by Denuvo.
