Denuvo announced that its popular Denuvo Anti-Cheat program is now on the PlayStation 5. Several PS5 launch titles already use it, added the company, although it didn't specify which ones. Denuvo also adds that Anti-Cheat will not affect the performance of any games that use it.

Denovo has been long revered by game developers for its nearly-uncrackable encryption. It has been reviled by pirates for the same reason. The company has several other products too, one of which happens to be Denuvo Anti-Cheat. It has now arrived on the PlayStation 5.

Denuvo announced its arrival on the platform via a blog post. Apparently, several PlayStation 5 launch titles use Denuvo Anti-Cheat already, but the company neglected to specify which ones. One of the main criticisms against Denuvo was that it was a resource hog that impeded performance in several titles, such as Assassins Creed: Origins. Denuvo assures gamers that Denuvo Anti-Cheat on the PlayStation 5 will do no such thing, due to its 'non-intrusive methodology.

However, the lingering question on everybody's mind is, just who asked for this? Compared to PC, which is legitimately riddled with cheaters, consoles are relatively better off. However, a cursory glance at Ubisoft and EA forums tell us that there is an increasing number of cheaters on consoles.

It'll be interesting to see if Denuvo Anti-cheat can do anything about players who use a mouse and keyboard via third-party mods such as the Xim 4 adaptor. Although it isn't technically cheating, it does give players an undue advantage over enemies who use a controller.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I got my first writing gig at the age of 19. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry and a few other publications like Wccftech before joining Notebookcheck in November 2019. I cover a variety of topics including smartphones, gaming, and computer hardware.
