Devil May Cry 5 has been cracked on launch day, does not contain Denuvo at all

Now here is something really interesting. Devil May Cry 5 has just been released on the PC and the game has already been cracked. What’s really interesting here, however, is that the cracked version uses a Denuvo-free executable file, meaning that it does not contain the Denuvo anti-tamper tech at all.

This is similar to the Final Fantasy XV crack release that was based on the Denuvo-free executable file that was used for the game’s demo. To be honest, I seriously don’t know who leaked this executable file as the demo for Devil May Cry 5 never came out on the PC platform.

Still, what’s really important here is that the cracked version, and contrary to most other Denuvo cracks we’ve seen in the past, does not feature the anti-tamper tech at all. According to reports, this executable file works fine and does not crash the game.

As always, we won’t allow links to pirated content and we’ll ban those that attempt such a thing. It will also be interesting to see how Capcom will react to this leak. The Japanese company has removed Denuvo from Resident Evil 7, however both Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5 still use it.

Stay tuned for more as we’ll share our initial tech impressions for Devil May Cry 5 later today!
