For those unaware, it took a security-slashing group just five days to crack the anti-tampering technology of Denuvo on Tekken 7 for PC. This may very well be the fastest breach ever recorded, bringing to highlight once again that the technology has become less effective over time.
In response, Bandai Namco will be releasing a security update today to put a band-aid on Denuvo. We are unsure if the pirated version of the game is able to connect online to battle other players. If it is, the update should plug that hole for the time being.
The developer will then address online stability and matchmaking issues of PlayStation 4 at the end of the week with another update. A more detailed list of changes will be shared soon, which also includes a ton of bug fixes. Finally, a similar patch to the PlayStation 4 version will then be released for Xbox One and PC in the next week.
“The TEKKEN team is actively working on improving the Tekken 7 game experience for everybody,” reads an announcement. “This is currently our top priority and we appreciate your patience.”
Released last week, Tekken 7 marched into the weekend with stellar reviews and is being hailed as one of the best installments in the series as well as one of the best fighting games in recent years. It is the first installment in the iconic fighting franchise to debut at the top spot in the retail charts of the United Kingdom in almost a decade.
Tekken 7 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
