A Denuvo service interruption made dozens of games unplayable this weekend

Dozens of online games were unplayable for parts of the weekend due to a Denuvo domain going offline. Service has since been restored, but the downtime angered players in both single-player and multiplayer games that use the anti-piracy and anti-cheat tech, which has routinely been criticised for its impacts on game performance.

VGC reports that players took to social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter Sunday to flag downtimes in their favourite games. These included new releases like Football Manager 2022 and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as older titles like fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 and strategy game Total War: Warhammer.

In a statement provided to PC Gamer, the company stated: “A Denuvo domain was unreachable yesterday afternoon CET. The problem was fixed after we got notified from our automatic system control. After the fix, there was no whatsoever restriction or limitation for the gamer. Denuvo is working to implement further improvements to avoid such downtime in the future.”
