The Witcher 3 Will Have the Same Content Across All Platforms

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not feature platform exclusive content according to Marcin Iwinski, co-founder of CD Projekt Red – the game’s developer. Despite this Iwinski hinted at “marketing co-operation” with one platform, though he did not divulge whether this would be with PS4, Xbox One or PC.

Iwinski Said:

We are treating all gamers equally. We’ll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody’s paying us money for that. It’s definitely against our values. We are not doing that.

What we are doing in terms of marketing co-operation, you’ll see that at E3.

The Witcher 3 was featured on Microsoft’s stage at last year’s E3 and the game will be returning to the show this year, though it remains to be seen if it will again be part of Microsoft’s conference.

Iwinski also said that there will be some kind of online connectivity in the game, though this will be in the form of social sharing rather than multiplayer. More details will be revealed “when the time comes”.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set for release in February 2015.

CD Projekt Red Working on Mobile Game

cdpredThe developers of The Witcher series of games, CD Projekt Red, have announced they are working on a mobile game. The Polish development team have not yet revealed the exact nature of the game but an official announcement is expected soon. In a management report, translated from Polish by Eurogamer, the company stated:

For several months, along with an external partner, we worked on another, unannounced project, which we plan to launch this year. It’s a multiplatform mobile game, made with advanced technological capabilities of tablets and smartphones in mind. Thus, we are entering a completely new territory in terms of gameplay and business model, realising our strategic plans to enter the mobile gaming market.

CD Projekt Red co-founder, Adam Kicinski, shed further light on the decision to develop for mobile devices:

Smartphones and tablets are truly powerful platforms these days and are finally giving us the ability to develop mobile games we would like to play ourselves; games that are taking full advantage of newest smartphone and tablet technologies, and offer the quality level that we, as a studio, are always aiming to achieve.

The game is apparently based on one of the developer’s existing brands, so it could be some kind of tie-in to the recently delayed game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The only other game CD Projekt Red is known to be working on currently is Cyberpunk 2077.
