Denuvo, the infamous anti-piracy system, has been removed from Hitman 2 in a recent update.

In a new update nearly four months after the game's release, the software has been removed. Not that it's done them great good since then. The anti-piracy software was cracked out of the game not once, but twice. The first time was before the game even released on Steam, the second time, which used Denuvo Version 5.2 instead, only lasted four days before it was cracked.

Though of all the games to receive a negative backlash from including Denuvo, Hitman 2 wasn't one of them. One of the most common reasons that the gaming community dislikes the DRM software is due to in-game stuttering that it had been known to cause. Fortunately, Hitman 2 did not showcase this same issue.

Regardless, Denuvo's removal is a "win" for those advocating for the fair treatment of authentic consumers. GamerzUnite doesn't promote or approve of piracy of course, we just want people who buy their games to not have to deal with extra trouble.
