CODEX was founded with one and only one goal in mind: “to give the dominating PC games group at the time, RELOADED, some serious competition.”

A highly motivated and hard-working group of veterans and rookies alike banded together and created a new name to achieve that goal. It was fun and sometimes dirty ride with lots of give and take on both sides. But sadly, it did not last very long and RLD started to crumble and slowly fell apart, making the scene less interesting. what was left when they finally surrendered and the dust settled? The blade has been dull for a long time. Quality, tradition and pride was slowly fading to darkness.

Of course, there is a particular group that uses an old name without permission. From the first day they started releasing in the PC section, they have worked hard to shamelessly destroy the reputation of a once iconic group tag when they really should have closed down years ago after all the spectacular fuckups they are responsible for. Since then there have only been people resurrecting and adopting old names from previously busted groups instead of creating something new and unique on their own. Starting from nothing to slowly build up a reputation for themselves through hard work was obviously too much of a hassle and recycling old identities to get a head start was their way to go.

Still, even with that, this did not lead to any serious competition with two traits we pride ourselves on-- a strong continued effort and a good amount of quality output on more than just DRM-free games or simple Steam protections. CODEX cracked a large variety of protections like Steam (Stub+API+CEG), Arxan, XboxLive, UWP, Denuvo, origin, Epic, Uplay, Bethesda.net, Battle.net and custom protections on games like Grim Dawn, Street Fighter V, WwE2k20, Croteam games, BigAnt games, Minecraft Dungeons, and many more. So now, years after reaching our initial goal, we feel that it is time to move on.

We thank everyone who accompanied and supported us on our journey. Have a good time… Bye from CODEX !

There are a few eg spyro, razor etc.

I also doubt that they just gave up like nothing, I think the real story is that some of them switched directly to anti-cheat + DRM Corpos to help them to make money for living and the fact that newer denuvo stuff never got cracked because it gets harder and harder to crack or bypass it.

I think that is the real reason.
