The release of the first-person shooter Deathloop is still a few months away after a postponement. However, there should already be a trigger for controversial discussions. It has recently been found on the product page of the action game on Steam. There you can read, among other things, that Deathloop will rely on Denuvo's controversial copy protection.

This is surprising because the responsible development team at Arkane Studios has had negative experiences with Denuvo copy protection in the past. With the first-person shooter Prey, the team also relied on Denuvo's DRM measures, but was forced to remove them later due to significant performance problems. In other games, too, the copy protection repeatedly caused inconvenience and thus displeasure among the fans. In the case of the first-person shooter Doom Eternal, for example, there was initially a heavy review bombing before the development studio id Software pulled the rip cord. Even with the remake of Resident Evil 3, the team didn't stick to Denuvo copy protection for too long.
