Does Dragon’s Dogma 2 Have Denuvo? – Answered

Dragon's Denuvo

Most recent games will usually feature some kind of DRM to protect themselves against piracy, and most of them have been proven to be very successful. The most popular (and controversial) one is Denuvo, and here you’ll learn if it is present in Dragon’s Dogma 2 or not.

Is There Denuvo in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Dragon’s Dogma 2 features the Denuvo DRM as its anti-tampering system. Info can be confirmed on the game’s Steam page, where you can find its name. Denuvo is one of the most efficient methods of protection applied in recent titles, proven repeatedly to make any game that it’s applied to harder to crack and distribute illegally.

However, it also comes with a harsh price. Denuvo earned itself a bad name among gamers due to negatively affecting the title’s performance. Effects range from simple FPS drops on PC to even weirder effects. It goes to the point where some claim they won’t buy any game that includes Denuvo. Most people still buy the game anyway.

While this is not the norm for every single Denuvo game, its occasional negative effects can be very annoying. This is one of the reasons some companies opt to remove it a few months after their game’s release. This is not guaranteed to happen with every big release, but there’s always a chance that Dragon’s Dogma 2 would be one of those cases.

Players are already worried about the game not running natively on 60FPS despite belonging exclusively to the most recent generation. So, it’s natural to be scared about anything else that could make it run slightly worse. But the most likely scenario is that the game is already being made with those conditions in mind, so performance should be okay despite Denuvo’s presence. And since it’s bringing back the best from the first game, you shouldn’t have much to worry.
