Denuvo puts higher ups and shareholders who don't know anything about games at ease. Don't expect it to go away any time soon.

oh, i know ... still - it's good to keep an eye on the "progress" ... they're all bound to notice sooner or later

or maybe the stuff got new versions that are better for exe sizes :thinking-blob:
I believe a Denuvo-free version of the old 1.02 executable leaked. The latest executable is 1.04 and still has Denuvo. Something to remember is that as long as a game is receiving updates and especially DLC, there's a solid incentive to keep Denuvo in place. As an example, AC: Odyssey is cracked, but if you wanna play the cool story DLC you need to buy the game. It'll be cracked eventually once all the DLC releases, but a not-insignificant number of people will be swayed by the perceived inferior experience of the cracked version. I dunno what DLC RE2 still has in the works, though.

luckily Ubi does them episodicly so to finish such cool DLC you need to wait 12 weeks for the rest of the DLC anyway .... also i am like 4 games in the series behind anyway :face-savouring-delicious-food:

I learned to pretty much wait for shit to be content complete as I am the once and done kind of player ... so i would wait for "Complete edition" no matter what ... and with denuvo infection in .... my pricetag is around the bargain bin level

apparently all DLC works fine with the 1.02 version (not that it really matters - everyone should buy it anyway)

will be interesting to see performance comparisons, though

Well that didn't take long. How does Sega usually handle this on its own internal titles?
like most publishers - they pretend the crack doesn't exist ... they don't remove them :(
