Namco Bandai and The Witcher Developers Do Not Agree on DRM
Namco Bandai Partners VP Olivier Comte said he thinks Ubisoft’s strict-ass DRM is a good thing. Well, it turns out that The Witcher 2 is being distributed in much of Europe and Asia by none other than Namco Bandai, and that, obviously, worried some fans, despite CD Projekt RED’s stance against DRM and the fact that they run the DRM-free digital distribution service Good Old Games.
Have no fear, hardcore PC gamers. The company has addressed these fears on the Facebook page for The Witcher. “Our distributors commented the Ubisoft-like DRM security solutions, and we’re receiving a massive feedback about applying such in The Witcher 2. There’s nothing to worry about, as nothing is decided yet. And still, it’s a private opinion. You know Cd Projekt RED’s opinion about DRM, right?” Let’s all just let out a deep breath, now, aight?
