Speaking to Kotaku, CD Projekt RED have confirmed that The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt will be completely DRM-free, in the finest tradition of CDPR games.
“We are trying to get rid of DRM,” said lead gameplay designer Maciej Szczesnik to Kotaku. “If someone wants to pirate a game, eventually he will.”
“Which is bad, of course,” added the company’s MD Adam Badowski . “But you can’t do anything about it, so. We want to give the best user experience possible. When we removed DRM, people on those torrents were actually asking people not to download our game, because we [weren't using DRM].”

Local GON DRM watchdog PalZer0 could not be reached for comment, but sources close to the man describe him as “very happy” with the decision.
