"It has been many months since Denuvo updated to v6. And during that time a lot of game publishers have been successful in securing their PC games by using the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And while it has taken crackers a while, it appears that this latest version, which is now called Denuvo 6.0, has been cracked.

Earlier yesterday, a specific game cracking group was able to crack the latest version of Total War: Three Kingdoms. Total War: Three Kingdoms was updated one week ago to version 1.1.0 (which could mean that it has the latest version of Denuvo) and… as you may have guessed...the cracked version is based on version 1.1.0. It will be interesting to see now whether SEGA will remove Denuvo from its game (this seems unlikely as the previous Total War games are still using it) and whether other publishers – like Bethesda has removed Denuvo from its cracked games in the past – will remove this controversial anti-tamper tech from their games.

It's a cat and mouse game that will last forever, it seems.
