THANK YOU for removing Denuvo
I don't know why Sega decided to remove it, some people are speculating that it's incompatible, but whatever the reason is, I was not going to buy this game, not even on sale, but if release day comes and Denuvo is still gone, I will be buying it at full price, I'm not even taking the preorder discount.

Edit: IT'S REAL, NO DENUVO

Good. Added to my wishlist.

I'm not interested in Shenmue, and this decision doesn't impact my interest, but I have to leave a message of support for this move. Hopefully the support that people have been leaving already shows Sega that NOT using Denuvo results in more sales for their games. Now if only more publishers did this for their games (looking at you, Capcom, I'd buy MHW full price if it didn't have Denuvo).

Yes Sega, thank you so much! All of a sudden the 21st can't come quickly enough!

Oh shoot, I should have thought about doing this. The game is absolutely worth full price. I just kind of rushed to buy the game the moment I saw its removal with my own eyes. Now I'd feel stupid trying to refund it with a reason of "I want to wait until its discount ends and buy it at a higher price" lol.

Don't get your hopes up folks. Have a look at Sega's recent behaviour. For some reason they have been re-adding Denuvo in the past month to the following games which already have it.

https://steamdb.info/app/637100/history/
https://steamdb.info/app/584400/history/

If you intend to purchase Shenmue I & II because Denuvo has been removed, do NOT buy....yet. Wait for official confirmation because there is something funny going on.

I noticed for Mania. Interesting it's happening for even dead games (like Forces).

But this is just the slightly internal changelog. The DRM notice has also been manually removed from the game's Store Page which is very much customer-facing, you know?

If this is some obscure mistake and they put it back in, I can always refund.

Better to be to play on the safe side in my view. What's even weirder is that there's not even an EULA link for Shenmue. Very strange.

Wouldn't have made any difference to me either way, I would still have bought it.

OK I'm in, I'll just ask a refund if it was a mistake and Denuvo is readded.

And if they change their decision because of you?

There is no virus. That term is used fraudulently.
