    good, that means companies will stop paying for denuvo after a few years and have it removed, right? right?

      It depends, most Square Enix games lose Denuvo after only a few months. Sega, however, keeps Denuvo for basically forever.

        FFXV has had Denuvo for over 6 years. Who's still buying that crap to justify the 25k per month
        Worse, DX:MD has Denuvo only on Steam on Windows and is DRM free on GOG and the Linux/Mac Steam versions, but Square Enix refuses to remove it.

        I really don't fricking understand Sega. P4G, EO and P5 Strikers all still have Denuvo despite them fricking up and releasing versions of the game without it. Still having Denuvo on these games is a complete waste of money.

      They look at how many times anyone downloaded torrents + other bullshit numbers they can't actually confirm multiplied by the full price of the game

          It doesn't take a market analyst to admit that there is no verifiable data regarding RoI on anti-pirating software.
          My theory is that they simply consider Denuvo as deterrence expenditure.

        It's based on hype
        You market a game, hype is real, they expect lot of money. And if you have a dickriding fanbase who will buy any game you make

    The old men running Jap game companies refuse to acknowledge that piracy isn't detrimental to sales out of sheer stubbornness, and this is their moron tax. If anything, games with Denuvo seem to sell less.

        I have a feeling they have an indefinite licence regarding legacy versions of the anti-pirating software they used on release.
        Though this is pure speculation on my part, it seems logical, no?

        Denuvo has top tier one of the best security engineers. 25k per title a month is very believable to sustain company like that. You people strongly underestimate how moronic boomer executives are. They hear anti piracy they are happy regardless of costs.

      Atlus.
      They have 4 games behind denuvo: P5R, P4Golden, SMT 3 nocture remaster, P3 reload

      But hey, Fatlus gays will pay for the denuvo subs

        Atlus is the most interesting case
        SEGA and Capcom DENUVO games, but they eventually it off because they don't want to keep paying
        EA, the Football Manager guys and Ubisoft have frick you money, so it makes sense for it to be kept in their books
        And the oldest titles are explained away by legacy deals, where DENUVO was still trying to get popular

        But Atlus? Let's look at their history
        >Release Catherine Classic in 2019. No DENUVO, which is surprising cause SEGA was already going heavy on it back then
        >Persona 4 in 2020, DENUVO. Game gets cracked within months, but it still has DENUVO it to this day. Why?
        >Persona 5 Strikers in 2021, DENUVO. Except they accidentally released a non-DENUVO version first, so it got "pirated". Also still has DENUVO to this day. Are the patches that important? Surely the average pirate doesn't care.
        >Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster in 2021, still DENUVO, still uncracked and you need to emulate the Switch to play it.
        >Persona 4 Arena in 2021, still DENUVO, still uncracked and you need to emulate the Switch to play it.
        >Soul Hackers 2 in 2022, still DENUVO, still uncracked
        >Persona 5 Royal in 2022, still DENUVO, still uncracked and you need to emulate the Switch to play it.
        >Persona 3 Portable in 2023, still DENUVO, still uncracked and you need to emulate the Switch to play it.
        >Etrian Odyssey 1, 2 and 3 HD in 2023, still DENUVO, all cracked at the same time. I guess DENUVO must have just used one code for these at once. Maybe it only counted as one sale?
        >Persona 5 Tactica in 2023, still DENUVO, still uncracked and you need to emulate the Switch to play it.
        >Persona 3 Reloaded in 2024, still DENUVO, still uncracked.

        Either their earlier games were a one time license fee, or they're just paying a bundle deal for all their games. Perhaps you pay 75k a month for all the games you have, for example. It simply doesn't track otherwise.

          The last thing Denuvo want is for game publishers to realize that sales increase once Denuvo is removed, so its in their interest to be generous with the fees for long-term coverage.

            But surely they already realize this? Any big game that removes Denuvo gets a massive sales boost. It's well known. Denuvo doesn't do shit except make your game unpiratable for like the 1st month after release and make paying customers mad at the online requirements and poor performance.

          Makes you wonder
          Most people believe Denuvo exists to combat piracy, but it's really about control, licensing, and censorship

          Denuvo doesn't allow the player to own the game,This lets them force updates and even censor content (since you need internet to run denuvo games).
          ex:
          If tifa's chest gets censored. Then they know it's getting censored for everyone.
          There aren't any V0.1 before censorship that's leaked

          Empress, was probably paid billions by Blackrock to stop it

          I'm sure DEI is funding game publishers to use Denuvo, they aren't even paying 1$ for it.

            That troony simply got too many simps and now stopped cracking because hes a mini e-celeb now
            Denuvo devs are all former scene crackers, but Empress is too unhinged/standoffish to work with apparently

          Does Sega? Pretty sure now they just leave Denuvo on everything and Atlus is under Sega, which is why those games still have Denuvo. Yakuza 7 still has it despite them releasing the game on GoG, which means they were completely okay with the game not having DRM. They must have some kind of contract with Denuvo that gives them reduced prices or something, because throwing away money like this makes no sense.

        I wrote on the survey they did earlier this year that I wasn't going to buy any of their games until they got rid of denuvo. they probably aren't going to listen though. at this point I am waiting for denuvo itself to die so developers will be forced to remove it. I don't even care about pirating. I would have paid full price for a lot of these games if it didn't have denuvo.

    I think dont pay denuvo to protect the game from getting pirated
    it's more about: "Owning the game and never selling it, they sell the license" thing. They are "renting" the game. If they update it, you are forced to update the game. Since you have to connect online every time
    They're always the ones in charge of your game, also it will generate hype. If the game gets pirated there will be an unbiased opinion about the game online.

    I don't play much on my PC, but aren't cyberpunk and baldurs gate on gog/drm free? Say what you want about the game quality but both of those sold a frickton even being easily piratable. Hell, most players prefer buying it on steam than getting a drm free version.
    Whoever is the marketer for denuvo is a genius for managing to scam so many studios out of money.
