The makers of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings are cracking down on BitTorrent pirates in Germany, requesting hundreds of euros from each alleged offender. As is always the case with these schemes, settlement demands are sometimes addressed to people who didn’t download the game at all. In a recent interview with PC Gamer The Witcher devs interestingly enough say that their evidence is foolproof, but this claim is 100% bogus.

Since its release in May this year, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has sold over a million copies worldwide. Unfortunately, though, the game has also been plagued by piracy. But for the makers this isn’t much of a problem since they are making money on both sides, by getting paid by regular customers and demanding hefty cash settlements from those who (they claim) dared to pirate the game.
Following reports that security features were damaging the playing experience of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, today CD Projekt will release an update to remove all DRM from the game. But while the company informs TorrentFreak it was pleased to avoid a pre-release on this major title, as promised it will monitor and go after illegal file-sharers.
