Far Cry 5 has been cracked on PC less than a month on the market, despite multiple layers of copy protection.

Cracking group CPY recently confirmed that Far Cry 5's DRM has been successfully circumvented--which is undoubtedly welcome news to gaming pirates everywhere. The game itself uses three layers of protection from Denuvo, EAC, and VMProtect, and actually uses the latest Denuvo 5.0 version to boot.

Ubisoft will likely handle this by releasing a patch that locks players out of the game via an update, and it'll be interesting to see if the publisher keeps using Denuvo to secure its games in the future. Before Far Cry 5, Assassin's Creed: Origins was the latest game to feature multi-layer protection, which stood in the way of cracking for multiple months.
