CD Projekt Red’s Co-founder and Joint CEO, Marcin Iwinski, has stated that even though they have played with it in the past, their upcoming title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will not contain DRM of any sort on PC.
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.
In a bit of a retrospective comment he was honest enough to say, “We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned.”
The game will also be made available on Steam, which by nature uses DRM which is out of CDPR’s control, but he went on to say that gamers’ have a choice as to where they purchase the game and that anywhere that CDPR has control, like GOG.com, there will be absolutely no DRM.
