Assassin’s Creed: Origins anti-tamper tech does not cause performance issues

Assassin's Creed Origins

This week players have been reporting that their performance issues for Assassin’s Creed: Origins on PC could be caused by their double layer of anti-tamper protection.

As well as using Denuvo, Ubisoft have opted for VMProtect on top, leading many players and internet forums to believe this was causing an abnormally high processor usage.

However in a statement to PCGamesN, a Ubisoft spokesperson said “We can confirm that the anti-tamper solutions implemented in the Windows PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins have no perceptible effect on game performance. We’re committed to ensuring the most optimum experience possible for everyone, and we advise any players who may encounter performance issues on PC to check out as there might be already a workaround, or to contact us further explaining their issues so that we can solve them.”
