Cracking the Denuvo DRM is kind of becoming a sport these days with different pirate groups racing to break past the detested DRM included in whatever video game just came out. Sonic Mania's for example was broken after just eight days.
DSO Gaming reports that Denuvo on Sonic Mania has been busted, though Sega hasn't announced plans to remove the DRM. Previous video games that launched with Denuvo removed the DRM program after it was cracked like Rime whose developer pretty much dared pirates to crack the program by promising its removal upon a successful crack.
Sonic Mania's PC release was made difficult by a bug that required players to have a constant internet connection to start playing the game. Sega fixed the issue but said that Denuvo was unrelated to the bug. Additionally, Sega never advertised Denuvo as part of the PC release of Sonic Mania, although that's also been addressed since players started complaining.
