Capcom Sparks Controversy with Anti-Modding Stance – Calls Mods ‘Cheats’
Capcom Programmer Suggests Mods Should Be Frowned Upon, Sparking Debate in the Gaming Community
While some mods are created for humor or to enhance gameplay, not all mods are created equal. Some may have malicious intent or introduce bugs, leading to increased workloads for Capcom as affected players turn to the publisher’s support centers for assistance.
In response to these concerns, Capcom has integrated the anti-tamper technology Denuvo into many of its games. However, this move was met with backlash from fans. In April 2023, Capcom removed Denuvo from Resident Evil 8: Village due to player feedback.
