Maneater and Yakuza: Like a Dragon are two upcoming PC games that will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Both SEGA and Tripwire Interactive has confirmed this prior to their release.
Maneater releases on May 22nd. On its official forum, Tripwire Interactive had confirmed that the game will be using Denuvo. Moreover, the company revealed that the game will be coming to Steam on May 22nd, 2021. Additionally, we now know that the PC version will have a framerate cap at 200fps.
On the other hand, SEGA has revealed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will have Denuvo via its official Steam store page. This is a bit surprising given that SEGA had previously removed Denuvo from both Sonic Mania and Yakuza 0. SEGA had also released Yakuza: Kiwami and Yakuza: Kiwami 2 without Denuvo.
My guess is that SEGA will be using the latest version of Denuvo. From what we know so far, the latest version of Denuvo has not been completely cracked. Or at least the games that have been using it are still safe from crackers. For instance, Resident Evil 3 Remake – a game that a lot of pirates would love to play – has not been cracked yet.
Let’s at least hope that both SEGA and Tripwire will remove Denuvo from these games in the future!
