Denuvo 5.2 anti-tamper tech, used in newer games, has already been cracked

Football Manager 2019 has just been released and it appears to be using the newest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And in just five days, a new scene group was able to crack this latest version of Denuvo (which is called Denuvo 5.2).

From what we know so far, The Quiet Man and Football Manager 2019 are the only games that are using Denuvo 5.2. Our guess is that Hitman 2 and Battlefield 5 will be also using it (though we are not certain yet) and Just Cause 4 may use an even newer version (provided Denuvo ups its game).

In case you are wondering, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, FIFA 19, Monster Hunter World, Shadow of The Tomb Raider and Dragon Quest XI have been using Denuvo 4.9. So yeah, it’s pretty weird witnessing the latest version of Denuvo being cracked while there are still uncracked games using its previous version.

All in all, it’s pretty exciting witnessing the battle between crackers and Denuvo. It’s also worth noting that this new scene group is using GOG’s FCKDRM initiative for its name. Obviously the guys behind it have nothing in common with GOG, however it’s a pretty clever homage to it (though I’m not sure whether this will backfire on them).
