Wild hunt all you like, The Witcher 3 has no DRM on PC

The Witcher 3

“Out of the way, I have to defeat more DRM!”

In case anybody was starting to get worried, has put out a handy blog statement clearing up any rumours about being hampered by Digital Rights Management (DRM.) It’s pretty straightforward: “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.”

This, they add, goes for “the whole world,” no matter what region you happen to live in. Hurrah.

But wait, what if The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is sold on Steam? Isn’t Steam a form of DRM? It will be on Steam, and yes, but buying it there is down to personal preference. Anywhere the game is sold where CD Projekt Red has control, such as GOG or, presumably, the boxed copy, the title will have no DRM. It would be silly of them to exclude people who choose to use Steam, so they’re not doing that.

“I’d like to thank you for your continuous support. You’ve bought six million copies of the Witcher games so far. Whoo-hoo! Let’s celebrate,” the post cheerfully adds.
