CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski (pictured above) has told Forbes the reasons behind the company's decision to abandon Digital Rights Management (DRM) and his view on piracy in an interesting and refreshingly honest interview.
Iwinki says "First of all let me dispel the myth about DRM protecting anything. The truth is it does not work. It’s as simple as that. The technology which is supposed to protect games against illegal copying is cracked within hours of the release of every single game. So, that’s wasted money and development just to implement it. So if you are asking me how do I see the future of DRM in games, well, I do not see any future for DRM at all."
He further states that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has already been pirated by over 4.5 million people since release, a fact that the company admirably chooses to look at in a more positive light.
Head on over to Forbes to check out the great interview.
