Doom Eternal : 1.1 version will remove the Denuvo problem

QuoteWe're currently working on PC only Update 1.1 for DOOM Eternal that will remove Denuvo anti-cheat and address a number of crashes.

As Marty Stratton, Executive Producer of DOOM Eternal, said:

Quote“Despite our best intentions, feedback from players has made it clear that we must re-evaluate our approach to anti-cheat integration. With that, we will be removing the anti-cheat technology from the game in our next PC update. As we examine any future of anti-cheat in DOOM Eternal, at a minimum we must consider giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed, as well as ensure the overall timing of any anti-cheat integration better aligns with player expectations around clear initiatives – like ranked or competitive play – where demand for anti-cheat is far greater.”

Stratton also added that the Denuvo anti-cheat system did not cause any performance or crash issues. Stratton also claimed that Bethesda did not force id Software to include this anti-cheat in Doom Eternal.

Quote“I have seen speculation online that Bethesda (our parent company and publisher) is forcing these or other decisions on us, and it’s simply untrue. It’s also worth noting that our decision to remove the anti-cheat software is not based on the quality of the Denuvo Anti-Cheat solution. Many have unfortunately related the performance and stability issues introduced in Update 1 to the introduction of anti-cheat. They are not related.”

Huh, lucky for us it caused problems for Windows users as well.
