Just a quick question here for people who know more about this.
Is there anything specific about the list of games here that makes them not have CEG?
Basically, is there a technical reason they do/can not use CEG, or is this a choice? I made a post for the upcoming Q&A asking CDP if Witcher 3 is going to use CEG on Steam because over the years I got the impression it was optional to do so but I'm not sure now.
repost of the question here
Will the Witcher 3 on Steam use CEG
This question comes because of the statement below and the later added update which calls the statement itself into doubt
I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole world.
We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned.
It’ll be on Steam; the team isn’t going to exclude that community by any means. Gamers have a choice in where they buy their games, but where CDPR does have control — like GOG.com — there will be absolutely no DRM.
Basically it starts saying there will be zero (zip nada) DRM on PC for Witcher 3, yet then seems to backtrack somewhat in the update, almost making it sound like it would be out of your hands if the Steam version did have some sort of check.
As far as we know CEG is an optional thing. There's a list right here on this forum
keeping track of games on Steam that do not use CEG, and it's still getting added to regularly. Is there any reason why Witcher 3 will not/could not be on this list?
