The anti-tamper expertise and digital rights administration tech was blamed by many PC customers for efficiency points. Grey Box didn’t really feel this was the trigger, however investigated it anyway. While within the course of, Denuvo was cracked by “Baldman” who claimed the sport ran a lot smoother after eradicating the tech.

Right now, Denuvo is our solely efficient possibility.
“The solely factor that Denuvo is at present doing for us is checking to make sure that Steam’s (or Origin’s) DRM continues to be hooked up to the sport. There is a small efficiency hit related to this, however presently we don’t imagine it’s inflicting the issues which are at present being reported.
“It has always been our intention to remove Denuvo in the event of a crack. Based on other titles, we expect the protection to last two weeks, maybe three at most. We have no intentions of patching a new version of Denuvo in at that time.”
Bradley went on to say the crew is engaged on its “first traditional patch,” which it expects to launch subsequent week.
