Developer believes “DRM does more harm to legit gamers than good for gaming industry”.
CD Projekt RED said it once and now level designer Miles Tost has repeated the company’s stance once more. If you’re looking to pick up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC, then you can rest assured of the game being DRM-free on day one itself.
“You’ll be able to purchase The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PC on GOG.com from day one. We believe that DRM does more harm to legit gamers than good for the gaming industry, that’s why the game will also be completely DRM-free.”
Given the number of releases these days that require some form of client or another to be able to play (we’re looking at you, Origin), this comes across as nothing but good news. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently slated to release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in February 2015. Stay tuned for more details, including on the PC system requirements, in the coming days.
