Deathloop, players complain of stuttering and framerate drops on PC: Denuvo’s fault?

In addition to the PlayStation 5, today Deathloop was also launched on PC: unfortunately, judging by the reviews of the players who are multiplying on Steam, the launch did not go smoothly.

At the time of writing, Deathloop’s user rating is summed up by a very modest “Average”, since 40% of reviews assigned by early buyers are negative. From a quick analysis it emerges that the vast majority of the complaints were caused by the optimization problems of the new game from Arkane Studios: apparently, the Deathloop framerate turns out to be unstable and ruined by episodes of stuttering even on high-level configurations with cards like NVIDIA RTX 3080, RTX 3070ti and RTX 2060. Many users point the finger at Denuvo, the anti-tamper system adopted by the game.

“The game also stutters on my RTX 2070 at 1080p in medium details,” writes one gamer. Another complains of “horrible performance” on a configuration consisting of an i9 10k processor, an NVIDIA 3080 and an NVME m.2 SSD. There are hundreds of reports, all of the same content. We look forward to a communication from Arkane Studios and news regarding a corrective patch. Meanwhile, if you want to know more about the game itself, we recommend that you read the Deathloop review. On our pages you can also find out how Deathloop runs on PS5.
