Over the past number of years DRM tech has evolved and taken on many forms, from always online game systems and simpler methods like requiring Steam, Origin or some other applications to running.

More recently Denuvo has been gaining a lot of traction, with the most recent version of the software being very hard to crack of bypass, so much so that a game hacking group has stated that game cracking may be impossible in as little as two years if such technology continues to grow in popularity.  

Now it has been revealed that both Far Cry: Primal and Rise of the Tomb Raider will be making use of Denuvo's Anti-Tamper Technology, with Far Cry Primal mentioning it in the game's EULA and Rise of the Tomb Raider being briefly shown on Denuvo's own website. 

This can be found on Far Cry Primal's EULA, confirming that the game will be using the technology:

 

        THE PRODUCT IS PROTECTED BY DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (“DRM SOFTWARE”) AND DENUVO ANTI-TAMPER PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY

  Far Cry: Primal and Rise of the Tomb Raider will have Denuvo Anti-Tamper Tech

 

More worrying is the fact that it is also stated in the uninstaller that certain files from the Anti-Tamper Technology will remain on your system, even after a full uninstall.

 

CERTAIN FILES OF THE ANTI-TAMPER TECHNOLOGY MAY REMAIN EVEN AFTER THE PRODUCT IS UNINSTALLED FROM YOUR COMPUTER.

 

Square Enix has recently used Denuvo in Just Cause 3, one of the companies most recent releases, resulting in the game being exceptionally hard to crack.

I'd like the devs to explain why their DRM software stays on your system even after the game has been removed.Quote

Explanation wouldn't change a thing. I'm OK with them using Denuvo. But I am not OK with any software remaining on my machine if I choose to uninstall it. That's not negotiable and I don't care about any explanation they come up with. This is a red flag for me. I see that behavior as malware.Quote

Good thing I wasn't planning on getting either game. Now I for sure won't. I don't care how meaningless the file that remains is, If I uninstall the game it should just go.Quote

You can just manually remove associated files later, it's does generally state this when you uninstall a program "Some files where not removed but can be manually removed"

I'm guessing many on here never went through the early AOL days where to remove it entirely you needed to format your drive Quote

That's not the point, many people aren't good with computers, even casual gamers and I can bet that many of those people won't know how to remove the files that were left behind. If you uninstall this DRM software everything should be removed during the processQuote
