Dragon Quest XI Will Be Cracked Within a Week

Dragon Quest XI is heading to PC this September and since review copies are out, new information about the game is starting to come as well. It has been confirmed that Dragon Quest XI is using Denuvo DRM.

It is safe to say that the game would be cracked on PC within a week of its release. Judging by the past performance of DRM anti-piracy software, the game wouldn’t take long to crack. It is a popular franchise and hackers would be all over it.

However, creators of Denuvo aren’t too concerned about any of the games that use Devuno DRM. According to the creators, the purpose of the software is to protect sales at launch. Afterward, it seems if it isn’t their responsibility anymore.

Our goal, and it’s still the goal, is to protect initial sales. Of course we would like to have it uncracked forever, but that just doesn’t happen in the games industry.

They further added that there is no uncrackable software that can protect video games from piracy. It is ironic to hear about their goals when many games are cracked within days. So Denuvo has even failed to protect launch sales.

On top of that, there are serious performance issues introduced in many games. Final Fantasy XV reportedly dropped performance by 15% thanks to Denuvo.
