Two Point Hospital patch removes Denuvo anti-tamper software

Two Point Studios swaps in Steam DRM for its celebrated simulation debut

Two Point Studios has removed Denuvo's anti-tamper software from its debut game Two Point Hospital.

Two Point Hospital launched less than a week ago, but Two Point Studios has already started the process of patching out Denuvo's divisive anti-tamper software.

According to the official patch notes released by Two Point Studios, Denuvo's solution will be swapped for Steam's standard DRM software.

Denuvo has been criticised in the past for preventing offline play, and its negative impact on performance - an accusation that Denuvo has flatly denied.

Denuvo has expanded rapidly since its acquisition by Irdeto at the start of this year. You can read our interview with Denuvo about that expansion and piracy' its role in the industry here.
