Denuvo DRM Is “Hard To Crack Not Uncrackable”, Says Denuvo Following Resident Evil 7 PC Version Bypass

Denuvo DRM

Before the launch of Resident Evil 7, it was confirmed that the PC version of the game will use the Denuvo DRM. This anti-tamper solution protects the game from being cracked or delay the process long enough that it misses the crucial launch period.

However, things did not work out for Resident Evil 7 as planned, as the game got cracked within the first week of launch. It is very unusual for the Denuvo DRM technology being bypassed this early and now the company has come forward to explain itself.

Denuvo marketing director Thomas Goebl told Eurogamer that Denuvo DRM is hard to crack not impossible to crack.

Please note that we always position our Anti-Tamper solution as hard to crack, not as uncrackable. So far only one piracy group has been able to bypass it.

He added that they will keep on working to improve the Denuvo DRM for the software’s future version. He said that the team will learn from this and will do the same.

As always, we continue working to improve our solution to create security updates for upcoming Anti-Tamper versions. We will do the same with the learning from this bypass. It’s correct that the title in question was cracked some days after release. Given the fact that every unprotected title is cracked on the day of release – as well as every update of games – our solution made a difference for this title.

This is not the first time this anti-tamper solution has been bypassed as previously DOOM 2016 and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, which used this anti-tamper solution, got cracked.

Now the question is will Capcom opt to remove the DRM from Resident Evil 7, as it clearly failed to do what it was supposed to.
