Need for Speed Payback, the last episode of the famous series of Electronic Arts was cracked after several months of release. In the last hours, the news of another failure for Denuvo has arrived since Need for Speed Payback has been cracked about 4 months after the release.
However, it is a failure in the middle, as the goal of Electronic Arts has nevertheless been reached. The sales of the launch period have indeed been protected and, indeed, the situation has been much better than other titles.
At this point very few titles are still available and protected, among them, we find Injustice 2, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Star Wars Battlefront II.
A special case is that of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, whose demo has been combined with unprotected files of the Origin preload to start the game even before the release.
Not even a good time for Microsoft, since the pirates have managed to break even in the Windows Store protections by circumventing those titles like Age of Empires: Definitive Edition.
In short, the situation is not rosy for developers and remains to be clear how effective the latest version of Denuvo, which still seems to resist.
Although the developers still think that investing in Denuvo is a good idea, every so often we can see how the crackers end up breaking the security of this DRM software, some versions in just a few days.
For those who do not know Denuvo, this is the DRM software currently used by Triple-A developers to protect their PC games from piracy. These developers decide to invest a huge amount of money (according to rumors, hundreds of thousands of dollars) to be able to implement this anti-tamper software in their games to protect it just for a few days or several weeks at best.
