Continually asking for money from gamers will drive publishers into the ground, claims The Witcher studio CD Projekt Red cofounder and joint CEO Marcin Iwinski. Speaking to Gamasutra in an extended interview, the executive explained publishers run the risk of losing business if current trends continue.
CD Projekt Red not charging for The Witcher 1 DLC was a shining moment, Iwinski said.
"Sadly, I see the industry trending toward over-exploiting the gamer," he said. "And I think this will come back to the publishers that are doing that, and eventually, people will stop buying their stuff."
