The Capcom team has released an update for Monster Hunter World that removes Denuvo’s copy protection from PC. Fans have noticed, among other things, the smaller “.exe file” that is also included with SteamDB mentioned.
In the past, Capcom has regularly relied on Denuvo’s copy protection for large titles. These include Resident Evil 7, Devil May Cry 5 or the two remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3. In most cases, however, the copy protection has already been removed. The most recently published Resident Evil Village has also received Denuvo. Publishers often say goodbye to security when copy protection has been broken or the game has been on the market for a while. Compared to other titles, Monster Hunter World had the DRM measure much longer than usual for Capcom.
With over 17.1 million units sold, Monster Hunter World is by far the most successful game for the publisher. In second place is Resident Evil 7 with 9 million copies. Just recently, Monster Hunter Rise, the latest offshoot of the series was released for Nintendo Switch. The title is also planned for the PC at the beginning of next year. It will also follow on July 9, 2021 Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. The role-playing game will be released for Nintendo Switch and PC at the same time.
