Witcher 3 won't have paid DLC, CD Projekt 'doesn't believe in it'

Studio thinks updates and add-on content should be free

There are no plans to release paid The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt DLC, because development studio CD Projekt Red says it doesn't believe in it.

In an interview with Examiner, CD Projekt Red game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz was asked for his opinion on paid DLC and whether The Witcher 3 will feature any.


"We could sell extra content to gamers down the road, but we don't believe in that," he replied. "We believe patches, fixes and additional content should be provided to gamers free of charge. Only something really big, and something that will not make you feel ripped off, justifies a price tag."

Tomaskiewicz didn't go as far as completely rule out the possibility of paid content in the future, but he made it clear that if such content did eventually appear it'd be a worthwhile addition, such as a full-sized expansion, as opposed to something trivial such as different weapon types or outfits.

"If we ever decide to charge you for something, we think you will appreciate what you get in return", he added.

Earlier this year, CD Projeckt Red announced that The Witcher 3 will be supported with content for two years after release.

The Witcher 3 is headed to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2014.
