There will be no more pirated games in two years, according to a Chinese cracking group called 3DM.

In a blog post from one of their members who goes by the name "Bird Sister," the group revealed frustrations in cracking the Denuvo anti-tamper measures put on Just Cause 3.

"Bird Sister" said that 3DM believes it's possible to crack Denuvo, but she also commented on the state of piracy and the technology moving forward.

“I still believe that this game can be compromised," said Bird Sister. "But according to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”

Denuvo is a special kind of anti-piracy technology, as its purpose is to protect existing digital rights management (DRM) as a secondary measure of defense. Use of DRM like this has been criticized by developers like CD Projekt Red, who spoke out against DRM in an IGN interview.

"It also doesn’t protect, not really," said CD Projekt Red's head of marketing and PR Michal Platkow-Gilewski. "Games are cracked in minutes, hours or days, but they’re always cracked. If you want to pirate you’ll find a way."
