The RPG studio has long stood against DRM and assures fans their prejudice continues as CEO Marcin Iwinski blogs loud and clear: "absolutely no DRM from day 0."
They decided to make sure everyone knows - again - that there's no DRM after announcingwould be bringing The Witcher 3 to stores in the US and Europe.
"I’d 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 doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole world," blogged Marcin Iwinski.
"We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned."
Of course Steamworks will be present if The Witcher 3 is bought through Steam. "...the team isn’t going to exclude that community by any means. Gamers have a choice in where they buy their games, but where CDPR does have control — like GOG.com — there will be absolutely no DRM," Iwinski continued.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014.
CD Projekt RED affirms The Witcher 3 to have no DRM: "Zero. Zip. Nada."
