Denuvo anti-tamper removed from Two Point Hospital six days after launch

Denuvo anti-tamper removed from Two Point Hospital six days after launch

Less than week after its release, anti-tamper tech Denuvo has been stripped off Theme Hospital spiritual follow-up Two Point Hospital.

That's according to an update from developer Two Point Studios - as spotted by Resetera - which features a number of updates including the switch from Denuvo to Steam's own DRM.

The game was actually cracked before the game even came out. Though there have been issues with Denuvo's anti-tamper tech being broken early on, the company has seen more success recently. Both Monster Hunter World and Jurassic World Evolution are both uncracked at the time of writing.

“We’re six days into Two Point Hospital being out in the world and we find ourselves constantly blown away by your love and support for what we’re doing,” Two Point Studios wrote in the update.

“So thank you so much, from all of us here at the Studio. Not ones to rest on our laurels, we’ve been hard at work improving the game and we’re ready to release a hotfix for a few issues that have cropped up in the last couple of days.”

We caught up with both Two Point Studios and Denuvo last week.
