    Denuvo’s latest 5.2 version of its Anti-Tamper DRM protection has been blown wide open, this time by a new hacking group known as FCKDRM. They’ve borrowed the branding from GOG’s new anti-DRM initiative, turning their hands to the business of cracking games.

    There are currently just two games that support Denuvo 5.2 - Football Manager 2019 and The Quiet Man. The latter is, by all accounts, pretty damn awful and thus unlikely to be cracked, while Football Manager 2019 has been cracked within a week of its launch.

    As we head into a busy few weeks, this probably comes as worrying news to AAA publishers. Battlefield V, Hitman 2 and Just Cause 4 are all going to be using Denuvo, and the likelihood is they’ll be using the latest 5.2 version of Denuvo unless an update can be rolled out pronto. The older, version 4.9 edition of Denuvo Anti-Tamper has yet to be cracked, so we may even see Denuvo roll back to a previous version.

    Depending on whether crackers deem it worthwhile to put in the legwork, we could end up in a truly odd scenario whereby Battlefield V is cracked up to 11 days before its official November 20th launch date. BF5 is available 11 days before launch for those who sign up to the Origin Access Premier subscription service, providing ample time for hackers to get to work before the game’s full launch on November 20th.

    That’s the risk EA takes when it makes its games available much earlier for EA Access subscribers so it should certainly be something to keep an eye on. The multiplayer element will be pretty much redundant, but if the single-player War Stories are decent then Battlefield 5 could become a target.

    The never-ending battle continues then, this time with a new player in the shape FCKDRM. GOG seems to have inspired a whole new level of anti-DRM sentiment...

    Will Denuvo give a refund to the developers of Hitman 2?

    I think I remember reading something in the past about if a game protected by Denuvo is cracked within a certain period of time then Denuvo will reimburse the developer the money paid for that protection? someone please correct me.

    I dont know why we discuss Denuvo here? There are eough places where you can do that. I remember discussing cracks here is not allowed.

    Also, source battlefield forums? Please... and one more thing for the people who just believe everything and have not much knowledge.. Just because Denuvo (version) 5.2 was cracked at some game doesnt mean its cracked at all. For every game its different despite the same Denuvo version. It has nothing to do with it. You could crack 5.2 but wont be able to crack a prev. version on a different game. Got it?

    Its the developers/publishers choice to do that. Its not writte in Stones you have to do that. So yeah, it happened before. If its happening in the 1st two weeks after release, Denuvo have to give back paid money for protection. But its possible they changed their policy when some Denuvo games where cracked really soon back then.

    Also @Op you can remove that crap "Hitman is cracked, Denuvo 5.3 down" in your sig - lolz. Its not cracked. You can only play prologue and not the other missions. Crashing, etc. so yet again, the game is not cracked at all! Guess what. Assassin's Creed Odyssey was much harder to crack than FM19 for instance despite an older Denuvo version!

    Ps.

    All those articles on different "gaming-sites" dsogaming, etc. blah blah writing denuvo version xx is cracked and so it has to be that every game must be cracked with the same version are just dumb idiots who have no knowledge about - like i explained earlier about the "version". Its just funny to read those articles like they know anything about it.

    I didn't share any links to pirated software,just let you know that FUCKDRM as correct he's crack and the game is now really cracked !
    You really think that people wont find the crack LMAO...Remember google is there.
    People dont need Guru3D to find cracked games or software just "google".
    You must be thinking that most of the users of Guru3d dont know where to find pirated software...
    Yeah most of them are virgin..Anyway!
    At least if you dont whant people to find pirated software don't say everywere that it's been cracked...

    You did not shared any link(s) but..... you are providing the correct keywords.;)

    The topic is about Denuvo Anti Tamper v/s Crackers...and how games evolving during launch.

    The Title of the post :
    Denuvo DRM's Latest Version 5.2 Cracked, Could Spell Trouble for AAA games
    Please do not make this topic an "issue"..., guru.

    Friend, why are you angry unnecessarily? Just asked to remove the screenshot (policies and politeness).

    I really don't get any of this drama regarding Denuvo. Publisher wanna protect their game from people who didn't bought it? Fine with me.

    Any comment regarding Denuvo deteriorating performance is pure fantasm. We see a lot of threads on social media, reddit, regarding Denuvo, but i really don't know why general consumer care about this?! (does he?) Or maybe it's just a vocal minority shouting about it in social media.

    As long as you don't know about PC gaming in a wide spectrum you shouldn't talk. DENUVO is deteriorating performance in mediocre gaming systems with visible loss. With higher end ones you can't see this. Don't defend trash coding of DRMs.

    OK master racer? :)

    My pirated copies of ACOrigins and ACOdyssey are smoother with higher fps and not a sign of stutter or loading NPCs or textures. I regret giving my money to ubisoft for gold and ultimate versions of these shitholes. They force users to upgrade.

    I know I'm kinda disappointed in my gold edition of AC:Origins as well. I downloaded the scene release, liked it, and bought it in a sale but only got stuttery cut scenes as a thank you. The scene release was perfectly fine on the other hand. [Yes I know they're bypasses]

    Then there's other weird sh1t like injustice 2 where the crackers gave out detailed technical info about certain characters and moves causing performance problems thanks to this pos. I have the game in steam so no chance of bad cracks causing trouble. Oh and it randomly crashes to desktop. A simple UE3 fighter. I wonder what changed over MK:X?

    Shadow of War also would always stutter if you did certain actions like investigate a captain's whereabouts.

    I still buy games I really like but at a heavy discount or via grey market sites (where they end up losing more lol) but I'm not gonna get sentimental about supporting the devs or whatever if they don't have any problems screwing us over with heavy DRM (4-5 layers, really?), unwanted clients or sign ups, data harvesting, and abandoned games (FU square for Nier Automata).
