Is Anti-Piracy Software To Blame For Assassin’s Creed: Origins Poor PC Optimization
Assassin’s Creed: Origins recently released on PC and most of the reviews are fairly positive. However, one thing that all of the reviews note is the fact that game requires a very powerful PC to run well. The game certainly looks good, but we’re slightly surprised at the issues this title is having which makes us think it might be an issue of poor optimization.
Well, there’s a new theory that is offering a bit of an explanation. It turns out that Ubisoft is making use of an anti-pirate technology known as Denuvo. This software is reportedly part of the reason the game is having such issue with the latest implementation of the software causing as much as a 40 percent drop in performance for PC users.
We can’t confirm whether or not Denuvo is responsible for the performance issues, but Ubisoft has had trouble with this sort of thing before so we wouldn’t be too surprised if that was the case. Previous entries in the series were marred by the company’s implementation of an always-online requirement in an effort to fight privacy.
Unfortunately, it’s looking like the game isn’t a great fit for PC right, but hopefully, future patches can fix the compatible problems, because it is looking like one of the best Assassin’s Creed games in years.
