Denuvo Anti-Cheat now available to PS5 titles

The feature nobody asked for.

Denuvo Anti-Cheat is now available to PS5 titles, its creator Irdeto has revealed.

“Denuvo, the leader in video games protection, offers its Anti-Cheat solution through this program to publishers and developers whose games are available on PlayStation 5,” a statement from Irdeto reads.

“Cheating ruins video games for honest players,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, Managing Director of Denuvo, Irdeto. “This can lead to lower engagement, game traffic and shrinking revenues for game publishers. We are really proud be able to help the world’s most talented developers to bring rich experiences for gamers on Playstation 5.”

Denuvo has said that a “number of games” have already incorporated Anti-Cheat, which leads many to believe the likes of Demon’s Souls are sporting the feature.

Anti-Cheat is a common feature on PC, but often results in fan backlash; of late, id Software added and then later removed the feature.
