On its official website, CD Projekt RED has confirmed that there will be no DRM for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in an open letter to its community.
“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,” CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski wrote, in part. “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.”
Iwisnki also updated the post to state that the game will also be available on Steam so consumers have as much purchasing options as possible. “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.”
