Security company Irdeto just announced that its anti-cheat technology and Denuvo DRM software are officially joining forces with PlayStation 5 Tools and Middleware, allowing developers to use their program to help combat cheats.
The Sony console then metaphorically takes the field to fight the plague of cheaters, taking advantage of the already run-in Denuvo.
Here is the press release released:
Denuvo is at the forefront of game security with over 2 billion protected unique game installs across all platforms and over 1,000 protected games. Joining the PlayStation 5 Tools and Middleware program therefore promotes Denuvo’s continued commitment to excellence and innovation in game security. It also supports Denuvo’s goal of protecting developer investments, where around 70% of their revenue is earned in the first two weeks after a game’s launch.
Today, as a member of the gamer ecosystem, Denuvo will continue its mission to bring fairness and fun back to games by providing its Anti-Cheat solution to all developers who want to protect their games and players, from hackers and cheaters, on PlayStation. 5. According to the Global Gaming Survey, 77% of gamers report being rejected from a game due to cheating, creating a huge risk on game monetization.
“Cheating ruins video games for honest gamers,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, CEO of Denuvo, Irdeto. “This can lead to decreased engagement, game traffic and reduced revenue for game publishers. We are truly proud to be able to help the world’s most talented developers bring rich experiences for gamers to Playstation 5. ”
