In the never-ending war between crackers and DRM company Denuvo, the latest victim has been (as it always tends to be) the later's efforts. Version 5.2 of Denuvo's anti-tampering protection has been cracked, opening the floodgates to cracked versions of Mega Man 11 and just-released Football Manager 2019.

Considering the proximity of release for both Hitman 2 (November 13) and Battlefield V (November 20th), it's likely both of those games will ship with the same 5.2 version. The group that cracked Denuvo's 5.2 protection are using the moniker FCKDRM'', which is likely a homage to GOG's FCK DRM movement. This, I'm sure, is well above hat the initiative's objectives were, and is sure to be frowned upon.





In the meantime, cracking efforts for Denuvo's 4.9 version of their anti-tamper technology are still being eluded, with games such as Monster Hunter: World, FIFA 19, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider remaining uncracked. It seems that instead of improving on the code, version 5.2 actually made it easier for pirates to find cracking avenues. It'll be interesting to see, especially upon the release of Battlefield V and Hitman 2, whether the industry's confidence on Denuvo's technology will falter or not. Of course, there are always other, legal ways to protect DRM, as Denuvo very well knows.

What a waste of players hardware resources to put DENUVO in a BF game , more than 95% of its players buy it for online multiplayer !!

Those that are pointing out that 4.9 had already been cracked what you're missing is not all games with 4.9 have been cracked and the games he listed are in fact still on that list. Just check r/crackwatch to see that most of the 4.9 games have yet to be cracked along with 5.1 which was used I think only with assassin's creed odyssey

That's a good point. Just because a version of DRM is cracked doesn't mean that all of the games using it are cracked as well. Although it does stand to reason that as the base DRM is busted that any game with that version of it would be crackable with a bit of effort.
