Resident Evil 2 Uses Denuvo DRM On PC

Capcom seems to continue their trend of using Denuvo DRM for big games on PC. The recently released Resident Evil 2 will also use Denuvo DRM, as confirmed by the store page.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is all set to launch on January 25th. It is a remake of the second Resident Evil game but instead of simply updating the graphics, it is a complete overhaul of the original product with a revamped story, updated visuals, and gameplay improvements. It is basically a full-on remake that will offer the same story but in a completely new setting.

The steam page for Resident Evil 2 has been updated to add the warning about the game using Denuvo DRM. It is not a surprise to see this return for another Capcom game since they have done it with every game including Mega Man 11. Regardless, this should help the PC version from getting pirated when it launches later this month. Even though it is supposed to stop piracy, someone always finds a way to get past it making it an additional hurdle for those who have purchased a legitimate copy of the game.

Resident Evil 2 Remake will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It uses the RE Engine that was previously used to develop Resident Evil 7, and it will also be used for the upcoming Devil May Cry 5.
