Deathloop, the time-loop FPS game of developer Arkane, has a Steam page. In the pre-order details and wishlist features, this page reveals that the next game will launch on Denuvo, Internet’s favorite DRM.
“Incorporate a third-party DRM: Denuvo anti-tamper” is displayed directly opposite where all the digital goods you get when you get the digital deluxe version are displayed. This is the same DRM protection that was in Arkane’s Prey until July of this year, which was removed due to performance issues. Some have commented on PC Gaming subreddit that the software breaks the deal and is awaiting release on GOG, which will be DRM-free.
They won’t have to wait that long. The list of Triple A games that remove Denuvo continues to grow. The latest is a remake of Resident Evil 3, quietly removing the protective additions that were disliked in October. Doom Eternal adopted Denubo Anti-Cheat in one week and gave him a chop the following week. Devil May Cry 5 removed Devil May Cry Denubo in February. It’s only this year.
The Deathloop release date was confirmed earlier this week on May 21, 2021, after a delay in August. The stylish action-adventure game is the PlayStation 5 launch game and remained console-only for the year before moving to the Xbox Series X. You don’t have to worry about it exactly on your PC, but that’s great. To know these things.

Let’s see how long Denuvo will last in the Deathloop in May. On the other hand, this is the best cyberpunk game, the best detective game, the best space game.
