A lot of PC gamers were disappointed when they discovered earlier this week that Metro Exodus will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Naturally, the game’s Steam forum was filled with threads asking Deep Silver and 4A Games to reconsider it and remove it. And, surprisingly enough, the publisher has responded and stated its policy regarding Metro Exodus and all of its future games.
Deep Silver stated that its policy is to protect its PC games with Denuvo, meaning that this stance will not change (at least in the foreseeable future).
“It is Deep Silver policy to protect our PC games with Denuvo, and we’ve worked with 4A Games to ensure this will not affect your experience.”
Unfortunately, the publisher did not state whether it plans to remove Denuvo once – and if – the game gets cracked. In case this happens in the first week, Deep Silver will be only hurting itself by keeping it. However, and given the company’s history, we can safely assume that there are no plans to remove it when this happens.
Metro Exodus is currently scheduled for a February 15th release!
