Elder-Geek: CD Projekt RED Speaks Out Against DRM Rumors

With rumors and speculation surrounding “digital rights management” systems, commonly referred to as DRM systems, mounting in the past few weeks, developer CD Projekt RED has made its internal DRM policy public. The developer currently working on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings emphasised that a final form of DRM management for the upcoming Action RPG has not yet been decided upon, but that it would adhere to a basic set of principles.

The principles emphasize that DRM measures may not limit the experience of users who acquired a legitimate copy of the game. As such, common measures such as a limit on the number of installations that can be performed with a single CD-key or the requirement that players remain connected to the internet while playing are ruled out.

The Witcher became a great success being PC-only and without any DRM at all just by respecting their customers and offering a great game people wanted to buy. I hope they continue it this way!

I lost count of how many games I wouldn't purchase simply because they used a really shitty DRM system. I'm glad CD Projekt RED aren't as dumb as publishers like Ubisoft when it comes to things like this.
