The Resident Evil 3 remake no longer utilizes the Denuvo DRM that was previously present.

It appears the anti-piracy software has been quietly removed from the game, as Capcom has remained silent on the alteration. According to the SteamDB changelog, the latest Resident Evil 3 update attests that developers simply did away with the software.

The update reads “Removed 3rd-Party DRM – Denuvo Anti-tamper, 5 different PC within a day machine activation limit.” There have been no overt moves as of late to necessitate Denuvo’s removal, other than the fact that most PC players aren’t interested in having to deal with it.

Denuvo is a digital rights management solution that game developers tend to employ in a variety of PC games. It’s meant to make it more difficult for users to crack games and then put them online, ripe for piracy. Game developers can license Denuvo to be integrated seamlessly into the games they release.

However, Denuvo can often create problems for users who have purchased games through legitimate means. Though Denuvo itself states that its anti-tamper software “has no perceptible effect on game performance,” there have been a variety of examples that directly contradict this statement.

This removal marks less than a year since the very same software was jettisoned from the Resident Evil 2 remake. There’s no evidence as to why the decision was made to abandon Denuvo from the latest Resident Evil release, but it’s likely Capcom may speak on the update soon, even if just to clarify any potential issues the DRM might have been causing.
