Hogwarts Legacy Denuvo

Hogwarts Legacy has been raising lots of eyebrows in the last few days with its imminent release happening in less than a week. With many morality-centered discussions surrounding it such as the game allegedly allowing torture or the atrocious opinions of the franchise’s creator, there’s another far more simple million-dollar question that many seek to know the answer to: Does Hogwarts Legacy have Denuvo?

Does Hogwarts Legacy Have Denuvo? – Answered

Denuvo is the most efficient anti-cheating technology implemented in many games, and one of the biggest reasons for the declining game piracy in the latest years. The company offers powerful anti-tampering protection, and games that have Denuvo will take months before they can be cracked. This will also be the case with this Wizarding World adventure game.

Yes, Hogwarts Legacy has Denuvo as it has been confirmed by Warner Bros. in January 2023. This can be seen on the game’s Steam official page, which contains the Denuvo Anti-Tampering label. And unless piraters figure out how to make programming magic, piracy won’t be reaching this game so soon.

Buying the game or not has been a discussion point for weeks as it could mean supporting J.K Rowling’s extremist opinions and lending her your money, so playing cracked versions has been a valid choice for some people supporting the boycott, but still want to enjoy this game. Guess they’re out of luck by now.

Denuvo games are not 100% tamperproof, but it takes a lot more than usual for figuring out how to do it, and with fewer people than ever dedicated to the deed, we’re probably not seeing this game running illegally on PCs for a while.

Hogwarts Legacy is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, Nintendo Switch, and, of course, PC. Take a look at how to get early access to the game.
