Bethesda delivers Rage 2 via its own platform without Denuvo copy protection, while the shooter on Steam does contain this drm. The result was that a cracked version of the game appeared on the internet within a day.
Reddit users noticed that the .exe file from Rage 2 on the Bethesda platform did not contain Denuvo-drm. The steam version of Rage 2 does have this often criticized security. Although release groups can also crack the Denuvo-drm itself faster and faster, the codex release group could easily release a piracy version of Rage 2 on the internet based on the drm-free executable.
It is not clear why Steam users do get a version of the game with Denuvo when they purchase that platform. The DRM technology would have a negative impact in games. Many other games with Denuvo quickly fall prey to cracks. Metro Exodus was cracked within a week this year and a cracked version of Devil May Cry 5 also appeared on the day of appearance. The games from Denuvo that have not been cracked so far are Mortal Kombat 11 and The Division 2, this is because progression in these games is linked to online activity.
