Doom in the big test

The simple reason why Denuvo was removed at Doom is that it has served its purpose. This was to protect the game within the launch period against counterfeiting. The protection that Doom has maintained by nearly four months is an impressive achievement for such a high-level game.

But our goal is to protect the games in the time in which held the most sales.
