[DSOG] The latest version of Denuvo anti-tamper tech, Denuvo 6.0, has been cracked

Quote:
For the past couple months, a lot of publishers were able to secure their PC games by using the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And while it has taken crackers a while, it appears that this latest version, which is now called Denuvo 6.0, has been cracked.

Earlier yesterday, a specific game cracking group was able to crack the latest version of Total War: Three Kingdoms. Total War: Three Kingdoms was updated one week ago to version 1.1.0 (which could mean that it has the latest version of Denuvo) and… as you may have guessed… the cracked version is based on version 1.1.0.

It will be interesting to see now whether SEGA will remove Denuvo from its game (this seems unlikely as the previous Total War games are still using it) and whether other publishers – like Bethesda has removed Denuvo from its cracked games in the past – will remove this controversial anti-tamper tech from their games.

It’s also interesting noting that this specific game cracking group claimed a while back that Denuvo was dead, meaning that it may have found a way to crack all of the Denuvo games (whether they are using an older or a newer version of it). Whether this is actually true remains to be seen as there are currently numerous games, using the latest version of Denuvo, that have not been cracked yet.
Short article so I quoted most of it.

Haven't seen this come up in a while but I know it used to be a very controversial topic. I haven't thought much about piracy in a while; with so many sales and subscription passes coming up I wonder if piracy is going down.

If it hasn't been cracked yet it will be. DRM is still useless and serves no purpose other than make DRM makers money.

I prefer to ignore games with Denuvo in them until they patch it out.

Why not until it gets cracked? Shorter wait for you.

Because even if get cracked, many dumb developers do not bother remove the DRM.
The DRM stays in forever, some even still stays when the game is available legally in DRM-free form.

There is enough developers in this industry that couldnt care about their customer.

Denuvo is one of the worst, total waste of resources, performance and money. All DRM is pointless, it's nothing more than a game of cat and mouse, the mouse is gonna get it sooner or later. I'm more fan of oldschool protections that let you play but make the gameplay "weird", broken, etc. making it very hard to patch out, discover, test, ... it does get cracked too but since it's a custom thing for 1 game the incentive can be very small to do so compared to Denuvo which is annoying everyone in many games and most want it gone forever.

Well, yes, of course Denuvo has been cracked, like the 100s of DRM tools before. All of them, dating back in the years of the Amiga.

Like probably everyone else, I never understood why publishers were so keen on putting DRM, impacting the performance of their games.

I mean, I like to think people are honest by default. Way back when I was playing on my Amiga, yes, I was not paying for games. I couldn't afford them.

Now, it's different, I earn money and can perfectly pay for them. Gaming is really not an expensive hobby (talk to anyone in racing !) so there is no excuse for pirating.
I really don't see who is pirating now AND actively playing games.
