Witcher 3 - Confirmed to be DRM-free

by Couchpotato, 2013-04-09 21:51:11

CD Projekt RED game designer Maciej Szczesnik has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the developer's ambitious open-world RPG will be completely DRM-free.

According to Szczesnik, “We are trying to get rid of DRM. If someone wants to pirate a game, eventually he will.”

Not that the developer wants or is even courting piracy. In fact, it's something they hope gamers won't do.

“Which is bad, of course,” managing director Adam Badowski stated. “But you can’t do anything about it, so. We want to give the best user experience possible. When we removed DRM, people on those torrents were actually asking people not to download our game, because we weren’t using DRM.”
