DOOM Eternal’s Denuvo anti-cheat technology will be removed from the PC version

Howdy, tech-readers, the news is id Software is looking forward to removing Denuvo anti-cheat program from DOOM Eternal PC version with their next PC update.

In the first update on the 14th of May, they have released the anti-cheat program, however, with all the negative feedback they have received from the players, they have decided to remove the anti-cheat program from the DOOM Eternal PC version.

Marty Stratton – Executive Producer of DOOM Eternal’s has announced on their subreddit

Despite our best intentions, feedback from players has made it clear that we must re-evaluate our approach to anti-cheat integration. With that, we will be removing the anti-cheat technology from the game in our next PC update. As we examine any future of anti-cheat in DOOM Eternal, at a minimum we must consider giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed, as well as ensure the overall timing of any anti-cheat integration better aligns with player expectations around clear initiatives – like ranked or competitive play – where demand for anti-cheat is far greater. 

He has also mentioned that performance issues players have is not caused by their anti-cheat technology but based on a code change we made around VRAM allocation which will be also fixed with their next PC update.

However, there is no given timeline for their next update… but everyone is in the celebration mode.

Stay tuned, stay safe, and don’t cheat ya’ll
