Our colleagues from Digital Foundry (1.16 million subscribers) conducted a study on the performance of a hacked version of the sensational horror Resident Evil Village and compared the obtained data with a licensed game.

Given the data from the above image and video, a natural question arises: Why did Capcom, the developer of the game, not acknowledge the problem and provide a fix for almost 3 months after the release of the game on PC?

It is not yet clear what exactly this update will affect, but with a small degree of probability, it can be assumed that the developers will remove Denuvo protection from the game.
