It's probably from all the keyloggers that it contains
I would guess that it takes snapshots of your system and installed executables, and sends the details back to Denuvo, to see if you have any hacking software installed.
Denuvo says most [new?] games are sold in the first 30 days so it's not really a problem when they get cracked. They don't address when the "unprotected" game is included as a single 67mb exe inside the distribution folder.
Benefits of running a 67mb game vs 500gb game.
- SSDs have room for another game!
- 144fps! Constant!
- DLSS v2 works a little better!
- Nvidia Experience Spyware Game Ready drivers download 19x faster at 1/12th the size!
- Interstitital ads removed!
CDPR / GOG doesn't need DRM because there are so many gamers that like the company and want to support them by buying the full version of the game.
Conversely, there are so few people that like Bethesda now (after Fallout 76) and have little desire to support them.
Moral: It's only the companies that rip off their customers that need to invest in DRM.
You're an optimist aren't you?
