Nice to know I'll be able to play on linux again - I wonder what this cost id though, I'm assuming they still had to pay Denuvo some amount of money despite not using it.
I think Denuvo Anti-Cheat will eventually return when it's more polished and they've worked out a clean way to make it optional outside of matchmaking. Additionally, Denuvo has stated they are working on options to make their Anti-Cheat product work in Proton/WINE like they currently do with their Anti-Tamper product.
Ah, that works just as well for me - I'm not necessarily for kernel-level anticheat, but I recognize its a valid usecase (kernel-level or otherwise - in a perfect world no-one would cheat in online games, but they can and do, hence the need for anticheat). Good to know Denuvo's open to supporting Wine/Proton as well, perhaps their anticheat working would pave the way for others being ported.
