Denuvo has launched a new DRM aimed at protecting DLC from piracy, as the name suggests: Denuvo SecureDLC. The software is now available to customers using Denuvo’s anti-tamper system and rebuilds the platform’s API to block attacks and prevent unauthorized access. “Denuvo has become a point of reference for game developers who want to protect their games from fraud, counterfeiting and piracy, as well as protect the gaming experience,” said Reinhard Blaukovich, managing director of Denuvo in a press release. , then add. “Our current customers, big and small, are thrilled with the results, and we’re excited to help them maximize revenue and drive new business models for games that require so much effort.”
The press release doesn’t mention the clients in question, but it’s easy to guess that Sega and Capcom are among them, who use Denuvo extensively for their games.
Denuvo is a controversial game protection solution for many because it often ends up impacting performance, as in the case of Resident Evil Village where it caused a lot of crashes, likely due to interaction with Capcom’s proprietary DRM. We will see how the new DRM will affect the DLC.
