Denuvo anti-cheat systems are now available for developers to integrate with their games via Steamworks, making it easier for devs to stop cheating.
The only game that I know that used to have it. Was DOOM Eternal and that got removed as it works in a pretty similar fashion to the one in Valorant and/or the one in Genshin Impact. And people really disliked that.
Monster Hunter World has also had it. That said, the Steamworks application of it is new and no game has it as of yet
So many games use it. It always screws up performance. Usually gets crack within a month. They don't care, though. The publishers only really care about the initial weeks. That peak sales window.
You are thinking about Denuvo Anti-Tamper. A completely different service from the Denuvo Anti-Cheat that the article and myself are talking about.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided STILL uses it all these years later, unless you get in on GOG.
I have a gut feeling that there is more to this system than anti-cheat.
