The infamous Denuvo DRM software will be included in Street Fighter 6 for PC. Denuvo Anti-Tamper was mentioned on the game’s Steam website on May 30th, three days before the game’s release tomorrow.
The update is documented on SteamDB. Denuvo’s software is notorious for interfering with PC game performance. One of the most recent examples was Resident Evil Village, which was also produced by Capcom. Denuvo was ultimately patched out of Village this April.
While some gamers are unconcerned with the presence of Denuvo Anti-Tamper software, noting its counterpart Anti-Cheat software as a source of concern, others believe the game will have an impact on performance.
To be clear, there’s two kinds of services Denuvo puts on games.
The anti-TAMPER that SF6 will get is often confused with the anti-CHEAT. The anti-tamper doesn’t affect performance whereas the anti-cheat does.
Capcom wouldn’t put the anti-cheat on SF6, they’re not that stupid. https://t.co/olugF6joI8

Wes rated Street Fighter 6 as “as good a Street Fighter game as I could hope for” in his review. Digital Foundry will examine the game on the console. PC players will have to wait till tomorrow to see if Denuvo has any influence on the game.
