The latest version of Denuvo used in Resident Evil 2 Remake, Denuvo 5.5, has been cracked

Resident Evil 2 Remake was released on January 25th and was powered by the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And from the looks of it, it took almost a week in order to crack this new version of the controversial anti-tamper tech.

As said, Resident Evil 2 Remake is using the latest version of Denuvo which is – unofficially – titled Denuvo 5.5. From what we know so far, Ace Combat 7 is also using Denuvo 5.5 and the highly anticipated Metro Exodus will be most likely using this particular version.

Contrary to some other releases, Resident Evil 2 Remake does not suffer from any performance issues (despite the presence of Denuvo). As such, and if you are worried about the game’s performance, we strongly suggest buying it as Capcom did an incredible job with the PC version (you can read our PC Performance Analysis article here).

It will be interesting to see whether the scene groups will crack Ace Combat 7 before Metro Exodus launches, and whether they will be able to release a crack on launch day for Metro Exodus (especially after the announcement of the Epic Store exclusivity deal; a deal that frustrated a lot of PC gamers).

It will be also interesting to see whether Capcom will remove Denuvo from Resident Evil 2 Remake later this year (now that the game has been cracked). Earlier this month, Capcom removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from Resident Evil 7 so we are pretty sure that the Japanese company will, eventually, remove it from RE2REmake too!
