CD Projekt Red abandons DRM

Posted on Friday, March 09 2012 @ 19:52:32 CET by

Voodoo Extreme delivers the delightful news that game developer CD Projekt Red will never use any DRM again, because the company now realizes that DRM offers no benefits:
CD Projekt Red, the part of CD Projekt that does the game development, is leaving DRM behind for good. CEO Marchin Lwinski said at GDC presentation "Every subsequent game we will never use any DRM anymore, it’s just over-complicating things." They did include DRM in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, but quickly patched it out, apparently realizing the futility. "We release the game. It’s cracked in two hours, it was no time for Witcher 2. What really surprised me is that the pirates didn’t use the GOG version, which was not protected. They took the SecuROM retail version, cracked it and said ‘we cracked it’ – meanwhile there’s a non-secure version with a simultaneous release. You’d think the GOG version would be the one floating around." He continued "DRM does not protect your game. If there are examples that it does, then people maybe should consider it, but then there are complications with legit users."
