Bethesda To Remove Denuvo Anti-Cheat Program In Next Update

Bethesda To Remove Denuvo Anti-Cheat Program In Next Update”

As is often the case, things are not as clear-cut as they may seem, so I'd like to include the latest information on the actions we're taking, as well as offer some context around the decisions we've made. This isn't the same as the widely hated Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology, an anti-piracy measure, but still received significant blowback from Doom players.

Stratton assured players that id Software's efforts to discover another solution would be pursued with a better goal in mind for both the developer's objective and the comfort of the community.

"Despite our best intentions, feedback from players has made it clear that we must re-evaluate our approach to anti-cheat integration", he wrote.

In a Twitter post, id Software summed up that "We're now working on PC only Update 1.1 for DOOM Eternal that will remove Denuvo anti-cheat and address a number of crashes". "With that, we will be removing the anti-cheat technology from the game in our next PC update".

Importantly, Stratton asserted that rumours of Bethesda forcing Denuvo wares upon id Software were incorrect.

Update 1.1 will fix several crashes that are occurring when players equip customizable skins, and the developer has also identified and fixed a number of other memory-related crashes that should improve overall stability.

As for when Update 1.1 will arrive, there is no date set in stone as yet but Stratton hopes it will become available within a week.

As per Denuvo's official blog, Denuvo says that the new Anti-Cheat shouldn't have any visible impact on a player's experience. Since the software uses a kernel-mode driver that can access the OS, an exploit that uses the driver could be a potential security risk.

When you uninstall your game, all previously installed Anti-Cheat files are removed.

When your game starts, Denuvo Anti-Cheat starts automatically.

When your game stops for any reason, Anti-Cheat stops automatically. It's also worth noting that our decision to remove the anti-cheat software is not based on the quality of the Denuvo Anti-Cheat solution.

The introduction of this software hasn't sat well with DOOM Eternal players, with many Twitter users responding negatively to Bethesda's Tweet about the update.

One player expressed their frustration with how Windows Defender refuses to accept Denuvo Anti-Cheat as legitimate software, while another pointed out that they can no longer play even single-player DOOM Eternal without being made to install Anti-Cheat.
