Resident Evil 7 has not even been out for a week, and already, the notoriously hard to crack Denuvo DRM has been bested. Denuvo Anti-Tamper, or Denuvo, is an anti-tamper technology and digital rights management (DRM) scheme that has managed to prove effective in protecting games from being cracked for months. That no longer seems to be the case due to the efforts to crack the Resident Evil 7 Denuvo software.

According to dsogaming, the Resident Evil 7 Denuvo anti-tamper software has been cracked in less than 5 days, meaning that all other games using the software may be cracked within a similar timeframe. While many publishers will be disappointed by this news, there are those who see anti-tamper and DRM software to be a blight on PC gaming. It remains to be seen whether Capcom will remove Denuvo from Resident Evil 7 like many other publishers have done the moment their game was cracked.

Does this new concern you? Or are you glad that this hard-to-crack software has been overcome so quickly? Let us know in the comments below.
