Denuvo is a DRM (Digitial Rights Management), otherwise known as an anti-tampering piece of software. It protects a game from being cracked or pirated by hackers. While it helps the developers safeguard their game, there is a cost that the players have to pay. Throughout the years, Denuvo has been in controversy as it is said that it degrades a game’s performance. Basically, it causes the game to lag, freeze, and sometimes even crash. With Alan Wake 2 being the most recent AAA game, fans are worried if it’s integrated with Denuvo or not.
