Denuvo arrives on PlayStation 5. The program will become part of the tools available to developers to offer anti-cheat technology. The use of Denuvo is in no way mandatory for developers nor required by Sony. The official announcement came from Irdeto on the official website.
Denuvo is a middleware, a program used on PC to fight cheats. It is not very popular with gamers because it resulted in performance drops in the games it was implemented in. Denuvo joins the tools available to developers on PlayStation 5 to combat the use of cheats.
“Cheating ruins video games for honest players. This can lead to lower engagement, game traffic and shrinking revenues for game publishers. We are really proud to be able to help the world’s most talented developers to bring rich experiences for gamers on Playstation 5.”Reinhard Blaukovitsch, Managing Director of Denuvo, Irdeto
The use of Denuvo is obviously optional for developers. However, the company promises that using middleware will not negatively impact game performance. What do you think of Denuvo? Are you happy with the arrival on PlayStation 5?
