Resident Evil 7's Denuvo DRM has been broken

 
Resident Evil 7's Denuvo DRM has been broken, less than five days after the game launch, a new record when it comes to cracking Denuvo's Anti-tampering solution. 
 
This means that for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Denuvo has failed its only purpose, failing to protect the game during its early sales window and causing the game to be prone to piracy. This is a huge contrast to one year ago, where Denuvo's DRM was seen as impenetrable and could successfully protect games from piracy for several years after released. 
 
Capcom, Resident Evil 7's publisher is no doubt furious at how quickly their DRM technique was bypassed, especially since they are still required to pay Denuvo for using this technology, despite its failure to prevent Piracy for as little as a week after the game's launch.  
 
 

Resident Evil 7's Denuvo DRM has been broken

 

Denuvo is intended to prevent games from being cracked close to launch, with the DRM losing all of its usefulness after a game has been successfully cracked/pirated. 

In recent months, Denuvo's DRM technology has been removed from games like DOOM and The Climb, opening these game up for purchases from those who boycott the technology or allow these titles to be sold on DRM-free storefront like GOG. 

This recent trend of removing Denuvo's DRM after a game's early sales period allows the developers and publishers to regain some consumer trust, especially from those who are anti-DRM, while allowing the DRM to protect their game from Piracy during its highest sales period.

I just don't see the point of DRM really. There are games out there, and the most prominent example beeing "The Witcher 3" that have the game DRM free on GOG and the company is swimming in money and awards...Quote
