Videogame launches are hard. You need look no further than the release of SimCity, which shipped with unplayably broken DRM. Similarly, Battlefield 4 and Grand Theft Auto had seriously broken multiplayer on release.
Which is why it’s so nice to see a company get it right. The Witcher, a beloved fantasy gaming franchise, released its third installment yesterday, entitled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The developers, Polish studio CD Projekt Red, garnered a great deal of praise for the launch, both of the game itself and the limited edition version.
