Evidently, Denuvo is only relevant during the initial release window. The company insists that the anti-piracy tech was never positioned as uncrackable and that the goal was to always minimize piracy around launch.

"The simple reason why Denuvo Anti Tamper was removed from Doom was because it had accomplished its purpose by keeping the game safe from piracy during the initial sales window," Denuvo’s Robert Hernandez said to me in an email. "The protection on Doom held up for nearly four months, which is an impressive accomplishment for such a high-profile game."
