End Of Piracy In Sight? Pirates Are Worried That PC Games Are Becoming Too Hard To Crack
If you have been pirating games for the longest time ever, then chances are that you will actually have to start paying for titles in the future. Why; because several pirates have admitted that cracking games in 2015 is not what it is cracked up to be (no pun intended). This is thanks to the emergence of sophisticated anti-copy protection, which has become extremely effective in putting pirates at bay that it has become quite difficult to make cracked games playable. Sure, through enough perseverance, crackers are able to make games work, but they have also outlined their long list of instructions and tweaks that you will have to follow in order to make the game work properly.
The latest form of security that games are using is called Denuvo, and thanks to this security, it is taking pirates months in successfully crack a game. Dragon Age: Inquisition was one of the titles that took advantage of this level of security and it almost paid off for them because it took more than a month to get a working crack release for the title. Same is the case with FIFA 2016 and Just Cause 3, which used the same protection, which would explain why their pirated release haven’t reached the gaming community as yet.
There was even a quote on a forum post that states the following regarding the future of pirated titles:
“I still believe that this game can be compromised. But according to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years’ time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”
Does this really mean that piracy will be completed finished. Not exactly, because where there are pirates, there is always a way to get the games cracked, albeit with significant amounts of difficulty. Since piracy is prevalent around the globe, we highly doubt that it will be finished anytime soon, but thanks to Denuvo, their progress has received quite a bit of hammering in these last 12 months.
