The game joins the list of Square Enix's titles that also recently got rid of the tech.
Capcom has removed the controversial Denuvo anti-tamper tech from Resident Evil Village – you can no longer see the third-party warning on its Steam page.
Resident Evil Village was released in 2021, so the DRM lasted two years. Capcom did what it had done with Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, Devil May Cry 5, and Monster Hunter World, and now it is more accessible for those who want to check its performance.
In case you didn't know, Denuvo DRM has been getting a lot of criticism in the past years, with people accusing it of causing performance issues. The Resident Evil 4 remake still has the DRM, but it will probably also be gone in a year or two.
Apparently, Capcom is not the only company to quietly remove the protection: ResetEra users noticed that some of Square Enix's games, including Valkyrie Elysium and Triangle Strategy, don't have the Denuvo warning on Steam as well.
