Latest version of anti-tamper technology, Denuvo 4.9, has been cracked

The latest version of Denuvo, Denuvo 4.9 has been cracked. This version really slowed down the piracy scene for a few weeks but things will be different now until developers DSCG release a new update.

The newly cracked version came with games like the recently released Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Yakuza 0 and Dragon Quest XI. The software was cracked by the group whose name starts with a C and ends with a X, you’ve probably heard of them.

They crack originated from F1 2018 and will now lead to cracks for the aforementioned games being available as well.

The folks behind the technology have commented on them expecting their software to be cracked and their main objective is to protect launch sales. Game developers would often remove Denuvo sometime after release.

Opinions on Denuvo are split, some praise it for being the best weapon against piracy available right now while others hate the issues they would face with games they paid full price for. In most cases the cracked version of a game would perform an better as it does not have the anti-tamper technology to slow down processing.

Please do note we do not condone piracy, support the developers people!
