Denuvo introduces a new version of its anti-tamper tech, Denuvo 5.0

A few days ago, we informed you about the defeat of Denuvo 4.8. However, it appears that the company was one step ahead and introduced a brand new version of it. Not only that, but this new version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech is already being used in a game.

According to Revolt’s Voksi, Capcom has added this new version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. As Voksi claimed, this new version of the anti-tamper tech features significant changes, and he titled it as Denuvo 5.0.

To be honest, this is precisely what Denuvo has to do in order to protect all future titles; releasing a brand new version the moment the previous one gets cracked. As such, the company will be able to secure the first month/months sales of the games using it. After that, it will be up to the developers/publisher to either upgrade their Denuvo version or simply remove it.

At the time of writing, only Sonic Forces has been cracked. Assassin’s Creed Origins, Need for Speed Payback, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Injustice 2 and Star Ocean: The Last Hope HD Remaster still remain safe.

From what we know so far, Far Cry 5, FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE and Dragon Ball FighterZ will be some of the upcoming titles that will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Our guess is that these three games will use this new version of Denuvo.

It will be interesting to see how long it will take to crack all games using the Denuvo 4.8 version, how long it will take to crack this new Denuvo 5.0 version, and whether developers will remove the previous version of the anti-tamper tech from their games!
