Capcom Reportedly Adds Denuvo DRM to Street Fighter 6

Over the past few days, I’ve been seeing fans eagerly awaiting confirmation on whether Capcom would include Denuvo in the upcoming Street Fighter 6. The Steam listing for the game was updated just in time for its launch, confirming that the game will indeed have Denuvo support.

While there was no official confirmation prior to this, at some point, we did expect the addition of DRM in some form, due to Capcom’s usage of this in some of its other recent games like Resident Evil Village. Although, the DRM protection was removed later on, it was present at the time of release.

Well, why was it removed is anyone’s guess, but a report in 2021 found that Resident Evil Village performed better without Denuvo compared to the version with it. The impact of Denuvo on gaming experiences has been a topic of debate among fans, as seen in a various Reddit threads now.

If the DRM is not implemented properly, it could affect the gameplay of Street Fighter 6. When playing a game where every move counts, having FPS drops or performance issues can result in losing the match. However, we’ll have to check that for ourselves when the game finally releases tomorrow.

Till then, we will keep you updated on all developments as new information becomes available.
