CD Projekt Red's upcoming massive WRPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will see a release on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime next year. PC buyers will likely be very happy about the company's DRM plans, because there will not be any, proclaimed co-founder/joint CEO Marcin Iwinski.

"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," Iwinski stated. "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.

"We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned."

That doesn't mean that the game will skip a Steam release, however.

"It’ll be on Steam; the team isn’t going to exclude that community by any means," Iwinski assured. "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."
