Total War: Warhammer 2 freed from Denuvo in record time
Hackers again “wiped his nose” supposedly impregnable protection system Denuvo setting the new speed record at cracking it. With each such event, the system is still more convincingly proves the inconsistency. Until recently, the record dates for which were able to break the Denuvo protection, was considered to be eight days at Sonic Mania and four days on Tekken 7. As it turned out, this is not the limit. New hit Total War: Warhammer 2 was “revealed” several times faster.
A large-scale strategy of Total War: Warhammer 2 if failed. Not so long ago in the UK was robbed a truckcarrying 7 000 boxes with a collector’s edition of the game, each of which is estimated at 100 pounds. Now the hacking — although the game just hit store shelves. To bypass Denuvo protection from a group of hackers took less than a day. The precedent is very revealing: now impenetrable Denuvo is not much different from the old security systems. Once considered the “scourge” of piracy, inaccessible DRM system has turned into another small obstacle that hackers bypassed with enviable ease. However, very few for whom it came as a big surprise.
Because of the constant break-ins Denuvo is rapidly losing its credibility in the eyes of the developers. Many believe that in its current state the system is clearly not worth the money. The Studio one after another, abandon the anti-piracy protection right after the hackers manage to hack it. So it was with Inside, Rime, Hitman, DOOM and Mass Effect: Andromeda. However, the same SEGA, despite the rapid “opening” of Sonic Mania, to remove Denuvo from the PC version of the game is not in a hurry. Moreover, the next game of the franchise will also use DRM protection. What will Creative Assembly is still unknown.
