Injustice 2 feature 2

Warner Bros has removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from Injustice 2

Following Bandai Namco’s, Square Enix’s, Crytek’s and 2K Games’ example, Warner Bros has removed Denuvo from Injustice 2. Injustice 2 came out on PC in 2017, so it took Warner Bros and NetherRealm Studios almost four years in order to remove it.

My guess is that the companies removed Denuvo due to the compatibility issues that currently affect Intel’s new Alder Lake CPUs. I mean, it doesn’t make any sense at all to remove this DRM from a four-year-old game.

According to a deleted tweet, Warner Bros may also remove Denuvo from Mortal Kombat XI. Mortal Kombat 11 came out in 2019, so at least that makes more sense.

But anyway, it is good that more and more publishers are removing Denuvo from their games. While in most cases Denuvo only affects the initial loading times, there are occasions in which it brings a performance hit. Tekken 7 was a great example of it, as was Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Stay tuned for more!
