Producer Katsuhiro Harada has admitted that Denuvo is the cause of recent performance issues in Tekken 7: for whatever reason, the anti-tamper tech results in frame drops after certain attacks. While the problem will be patched soon, it is good fodder for those who regularly decry the middleware.
And this is precisely why developers should avoid using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. We are certain that both Bandai Namco and Denuvo will be able to resolve this issue, however once has to wonder whether such performance issues are also present in other, more CPU-heavy games, like Assassin’s Creed Origins, and whether these games would ran better without it.
