The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt RED has confirmed its open-world RPG will be DRM-free. Game designer Maciej Szczesnik has stated that if pirates want to crack the game then they will any way.

Speaking with Kotaku, Szczesnik said, “We are trying to get rid of DRM. If someone wants to pirate a game, eventually he will.”

Managing director Adam Badowski continued, “Which is bad, of course. But you can’t do anything about it, so. We want to give the best user experience possible. When we removed DRM, people on those torrents were actually asking people not to download our game, because we [weren’t using DRM].”

Bam. There you have it. What do you think?
