A Devil May Cry 5 update has removed one of the restrictions that could have kept PC players from enjoying it to the fullest. The latest patch has taken Denuvo DRM out of the game. The Steam product page has also been updated to reflect that the anti-tamper has been removed.
As a reminder, back in March 2019, a version of Devil May Cry 5 PC appeared briefly that didn’t have Denuvo. As Eurogamer pointed out at the time, there is a notable performance difference between one that does or doesn’t have DRM enabled.
Even with Denuvo in the PC version, Devil May Cry 5 has been performing well for Capcom. The company recently said that it “performed well” at its February 4, 2020 third-quarter investor’s meeting. It was also listed as having sold 2.1 million copies back in May 2019.
Devil May Cry 5 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The next major release will be Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for the Nintendo Switch, which will add new features like style switching and weapon switching.
