A problem with anti-tamper technology Denuvo over the weekend saw many people unable to play games they had legitimately bought.
Speaking to PC Gamer, a rep for the company said that a server error on Sunday, November 7th had resulted in players being able to use the titles they had bought. This included the recently-released Guardians of the Galaxy and Football Manager 2022, but VGC reports it also impacted older titles like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Persona 4 Golden.
"A Denuvo domain was unreachable yesterday afternoon CET. The problem was fixed after we got notified from our automatic system control," a spokesperson said.
"After the fix, there was no whatsoever restriction or limitation for the gamer. Denuvo is working to implement further improvements to avoid such downtime in the future."
Denuvo has come under fire for its allegedly negative impact on video games, particularly when it comes to performance.
