As Esports becomes increasingly popular around the globe, there is a risk that cheating in online multiplayer games is a trend that could go on to have a huge negative impact on the Esports industry. To help keep the playing field fair, Denuvo, which was acquired by Irdeto earlier this year, has joined the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) to combat all forms of corruption and cheating in the world of Esports.
Participation in ESIC follows a survey from Irdeto earlier this year which revealed that more than half of gamers in the UK (61%) and Germany (61%) have had their multiplayer gaming experience negatively impacted by other players cheating.
The Irdeto Global Gaming Survey of 9,436 consumers also found that many gamers in the UK (74%) and Germany (68%) are likely to stop playing multiplayer online games if they feel that other players are gaining an unfair advantage through cheating.
