Default Another Denuvo Protected 'AAA' Game Cracked Day After Release

Controversial anti-tampering system Denuvo has met with another major setback, as another "AAA" games has been cracked in less than 24 hours after release.

Despite lauding their own achievement in regards to preventing early release piracy for AAA games only a few weeks ago, the latest AAA game to use Denuvo, 'Just Cause 4', was cracked in less than 24 hours.

To emphasize just how ineffective Denuvo has become in recent times, 'Just Cause 3', which was also protected by Denuvo, took more than a year to crack.

Ironically, both games were cracked by the same cracking group, CPY.

According to Irdeto, the owners of Denuvo, the first two weeks of a game's release is the most crucial period in terms of piracy prevention. And the first day of release is also crucial, with as much as 12% of pirated downloads occurring during that time, for games that were protected by effective anti-piracy measures. The losses due to piracy could add up to millions of dollars, according to Irdeto.

The fact that the publishers of 'Just Cause 4', Square Enix, spent money to license Denuvo, the fact that the game has been cracked in just a day seems to suggest that the money, which could have gone towards the development of the game, was not well spent.

Early reviews suggest that the game could have used the extra money, as purchasers of the game on Steam are reporting a myriad of problems with the game. The game currently has a "Mostly Negative" rating on Steam, with only 33% of users reporting a positive experience with it.

The poor reviews plus the fact that the game is available as a pirated download so early, could seriously affect the game's profitability.
