CD Projekt: ‘We will never use DRM’



/ 7 years ago

This week at the Game Developers Conference, CD Project Red CEO Marcin Iwinski said “Every subsequent game we will never use any DRM anymore, it’s just over-complicating things,”

“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 added.

“DRM does not protect your game,” Iwinski told Joystiq. “If there are examples that it does, then people maybe should consider it, but then there are complications with legit users.”

This is good news for honest users of the game, I have heard a few stories and had a few problems my self in the past running legitimate software because of  copy right protection, but Marcin is right, why put a lock on something if it doesn’t keep people out?

  1. DRM only hurts the legitimate users and encourage pirated software because DRM suck.
