- REVIEW: Evolve
DRM has been extremely controversial during the past few years. Although it appears all developers love the idea, that's simply not true. Well, at least The Witcher 3's developer, CD Project RED, thinks it's an atrocious idea.
Hatred of DRM was shown by project lead Konrad Tomaszkiewicz during an interview with Forbes. He said:
DRM is the worst thing in the gaming industry.
It’s limiting our rights to play games owned by us. Let’s imagine that you have a game that requires internet connection to prove that you actually bought it. What if you lose your connection because of your internet provider? You can’t play anymore.
It's almost funny because for a few years the gaming industry evolved into an ease-of-use pattern where developers aimed for simplicity and consumer satisfaction. All it took were a few nasty years of piracy to watch that crumble down into the abyss. Now, online-access codes, always-online DRM, and rampant DLC have done away with the simple $59.99 games we once knew.
At least CD Project RED gets it, and that's just another reason The Witcher 3 should be on your watchlist.
