Same goes for consoles, if CD Projekt RED is allowed

As a development studio, CD Projekt RED is easy to look up to. That general sentiment continues following an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun discussing DRM and downloadable content for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC and consoles.

"A lot of people on forums are saying, 'No, but you guys are anti-DRM,'" studio head Marcin Iwinski explained. "And we really are anti-DRM. But at the same time, there are people who’ll be fine with [Xbox One's online-heavy DRM]. They’ll buy the console and just want to play. Why should we not give them this option?

"That’s our approach, but at the same time, we don’t know what the final policies are. Things might be changing. There’s a lot of heat right now. From our perspective, we’ll always choose the most gamer-friendly solution. And on the platform where we have control -- which is PC --we’ll release on GOG day one and DRM-free."

Phew. It's already clear The Witcher 3 is going to be a game we won't want to miss out on. The news gets better: "It’s too early to talk specifics, but definitely all the DLCs and updates will be free. Of course, we’ll see what the platform holders will allow -- what we can do for free [on next-gen consoles]. I mean, there are different business models on consoles. From our standpoint, we’ll definitely do everything we can to deliver the same experience across all platforms."
