CD Projekt RED has a statement on their
re-stating their hard-line stance against DRM for The
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
, saying that while the game will be distributed on
where it will be protected by Steamworks, on all platforms within their
control, their RPG sequel will have no digital rights management
Hey, following our recent announcement of the distribution
deals of The Witcher 3 in North America and Europe, there have been some
concerns regarding DRM and previous legal issues with The Witcher 2. Weíve seen
a lot of comments in various places around the web and we would like to join in
on the conversation.
Iíd like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have
absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesnít matter if you choose
to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format,
youíll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole
Weíve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naÔve we were;)) and
thatís enough. Lesson learned.
Having said that, Iíd like to thank you for your continuous support. Youíve
bought six million copies of the Witcher games so far. Whoo-hoo! Letís
celebrate. Here, have some cake!
Itíll be on Steam; the team isnít going to exclude that community by any means.
Gamers have a choice in where they buy their games, but where CDPR does have
control ó like GOG.com ó there will be absolutely no DRM.
