The revelation came via an update to the Epic Games Store listing
for Borderlands 3
which now has the line "Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: Denuvo Anti-Tamper". Hinting that Epic will list any DRM software as part of its library, which is a plus. The downside though, is that the controversial anti-hacking software will be utilised in Borderlands 3.
It's not a foolproof measure either, and something that has been patched out of some games post-launch - including Hitman 2 and more recently Rage 2. Which points to the implementation of the anti-piracy software being more of a check on piracy at launch. Although Denuvo claims that the tool doesn't affect in-game performance in any perceivable way several benchmarks over the past year have shown that it does take a hit - but as per company claims, is mostly negligible
Denuvo also made headlines last year
when it was involved in arresting a Bulgarian man after he successfully hacked a number of games carrying Denuvo’s Anti-Tamper software.
