Resident Evil 2 Remake new feature 2

Capcom removes Denuvo anti-tamper tech from Resident Evil 2 Remake by mistake, executable file leaked online

It appears that someone at Capcom has accidentally published a Denuvo-free version of Resident Evil 2 Remake. While the company has re-implemented the anti-tamper tech in the game, the Denuvo-free executable file has been leaked online, and those interested in such a version can get it and enjoy the game without having Denuvo running in the background.

Without going into a lot of details, the Denuvo-free version is based on the latest 1.04 game version and is around 170MB in size (the executable file with Denuvo is around 362MB in size).

Now I’m pretty sure that there will be some comparisons between the Denuvo and the Denuvo-free versions, so it will be interesting to see whether there are any actual performance differences between them (aside from the faster loading times).

It’s worth pointing out that Capcom had already removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from the previous Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 7, so I am pretty sure that the Japanese company will, one day, also remove it from Resident Evil 2 Remake.

As always, we won’t allow direct links to this Denuvo-free version of Resident Evil 2 Remake so don’t waste your time asking about it. Still, it’s really funny witnessing Capcom making the same mistake – aka releasing Denuvo-free versions of its games – in both Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.
