Reddit users decided to compile statistics on the Denuvo anti-piracy hacking in 2022. The results showed that 36 projects were supported by the Foundation during the period. Some of them, including Gotham Knights and F1 Manager 2022, were later left without it by the developers themselves.
Of the releases that were submitted, the hackers only managed to hack one game. Dying Light 2 Stay Human bypassed the anti-piracy protection that EMPRESS had. In the past year, pirated versions of the 2021 games were released. The list included Evil Genius 2: World Domination, Far Cry 6, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World Evolution 2.
In addition to Denuvo, in the past year, games have been equipped with other types of anti-piracy protection or have not used it at all. For example, soon after its release, pirated versions of God of War Ragnarök, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Soni’s Frontiers appeared online.
