"Zero. Zip. Nada."

Following the announcement that Namco Bandai would be handling distribution of the upcoming, very sexy-looking Witcher 3, CDPR have moved to reassure gamers that this doesn’t mean they’ll be suddenly slapping DRM on their products.
“There have been some concerns regarding DRM and previous legal issues with The Witcher 2,” says CDPR’s CEO and co-founder Marcin Momot on the official site. “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.”
However, Momot adds, the game still will be on Steam as “the team isn’t going to exclude that community by any means”.
“Gamers have a choice in where they buy their games, but where CDPR does have control — like GOG.com — there will be absolutely no DRM.”
