They released an open letter to the community:

This is why I support Gog.com.

I'll probably still get it on Steam. I prefer Steam's features vs no DRM.

Exactly why I'll be paying full price for the game. Major kudos to these truth seekers.

But I like DRM. I don't want anyone stealing my game and it helps protect it from this.

Preorder canceled.

What I really like about CDProjekt Red is their no BS approach to gaming. They know the importance of keeping their fans happy by excluding DRM and by not only additional content to the updated version of their game, but releasing it for free to those who have purchased it, instead of nickel and diming us for stupid DLC like other developers do.

This is also why I don't mind paying full price for their games, instead of waiting for a half price GOTY edition with all the extra BS they should have included in the original release.

My ONLY Problem is i wont purchase for GOG.com. I purchased Witcher 2, from there and for some strange reason i couldnt fully download the game. I even had Admins on their site attempt to assist me and they couldnt for the life of them figure out why it wouldnt install.

I googled it, went back attempted a clean install and when all files installed it had a pop up saying files couldnt be accessed even after disabling other programs and even unblocking my firewall. Sadly ill be ordering a physical disc from CDPR's website hopefully they get that money but GOG.com gave me loads of trouble.

CDPR is the most consumer-friendly developer in the business. Period.
Baffles me why people are preferring Steam's "features" for this game in particular over no DRM, as with all Witcher games the only feature Steam has is being an app launcher.

But for the previous two games, if you bought a Steam copy GOG will give you a free GOG copy if you enter your CD key on one of the pages on their site. For The Witcher, my key didn't work, so I e-mailed support with a screenshot of the game in my Steam library with the CD Key box open, and I got a personal response from an employee saying something along the lines of:
"If you say that's your Steam account we trust it's yours. Thank you for the kind words, and here's your new CD Key."

There's also the fact that CDPR is probably the only major developer with the attitude "If the game is good, it will make the money."

didn't they offer steam keys with their purchase of W2? if it's the same with W3 then people might as well buy from gog to ensure CDR gets 100% of the profit and still get their "no steam, no buy" solution out of the way.

everybody wins... well, except valve but i'm sure they get "something" out of it.
