Witcher 2 coming to consoles, says CD Projekt

Wednesday, 23rd September 2009 12:14 GMT By Patrick Garratt


CD Projekt’s said a console version of The Witcher 2′s on the cards.

“Although PC is a certain choice we made regarding platforms for The Witcher 2, we also want to release the console version,” senior producer Tomasz Gop told GRY-OnLine.

Don’t be holding your breath, though.

“However, please do not expect the game too soon,” he added.

“The Witcher 2 is still deeply in the development stage and as it is huge and complex, there are still many, many hours of work in front of us.”

Witcher 2 was shown for the first time last week in a leaked video. It looks properly awesome. Let’s hope there it’s a repeat of the fiasco we saw played out of the console version of the original RPG.

Via VE and EG.

    They had an issue with the company they gave it to make it console ready. But if Projekt is looking for a publisher their should be no reason why it hits consoles once they do achieve one. What publisher would said no to them? 1.4 million sales on the PC alone.

    I was looking forward to the console version of the original. :-(

    Nice to know the sequel should happen, though. Eventually.

    I’m here I am watching every thing that is going on. yes they were making a console verion but had problems with high production costs mainly HD.

    They were making a console version and pc version of the game. However if they are looking for a publisher it means they must have had a falling out with attrri or arrti was close to going bankuprt. Personaly I think arrti wasn’t doing well before champions online.

    there was something going on between arrti and sony too.

    any way back to the point, they were making a console and pc verion of the game.

    How could “HD costs” have ever been the downfall of the project given that the PC original was HD already?

    The two companies fell out over delays and money. Simple as.

    Yea I wanted a console version too. Hope it still happens a sequel is great but I wanna play the first one first.

    not the down fall of the pc verion but the down fall of the console verion. Pc games are cheaper to make than console games. In fact pc gaming is becoming so profitable game devs no longer need a publisher.

    basicly Cd projeck needs a publisher to help them make a console verion.

    Didn’t I read something over late payments? Seems like I did, if so, your right about money.

    So they already had perfectly good HD assets from the PC version, yet the console version failed because “HD is expensive”? Riiiiight.

    Pracer, the nub of it seemed to be that the company doing the port missed some deadlines and CD Projekt were otherwise unhappy about the state of their work so they withheld some payments. And unable to resolve those disagreements they instead decided to sack the whole thing off and go their separate ways.

    “you should know me by now, I always bring hard facts and’s why I win debates.”

    Funniest thing I’ve read this millenium!

    You dont win debates, you sulk off after everyone else calls you a loon. How you interpret that in your head is another matter entirely! :p

    You say you win debates, yet you’ve still completely failed to explain how RedLynx sold more copies of Trials on XBLA than on PC. Plus, they sold more over a shorter period of time and at a higher price point.

    it’s good when they have antother link leading to the sorce of the website

    wide screen is dealing with HD lol

    agin it only proves high production costs kills game devs.

    pc gaming is cheaper to make. nice link I will add it to my deabtes and proof game devs go bankurpt because of consoles.

    #21 5 years ago

    I had no idea that the way to ‘win’ debates was to completely ignore everything that everyone else says, “lalalaI’mnotlistening” stylee!

    Why do you think the PC isn’t HD?

    #24 5 years ago
  25. blackdreamhunk

    I try to answer everyone question but become imposble to answer everyone questions on the internet.

    by the way I have help game devs and shot down game devs too.

    sorry I had read some where it’s HD problems. Any way the point is they can not make a console verion because of production costs of consoles.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. Phoenixblight

    “wide screen is dealing with HD lol”

    Wow I mean WOW. You have to be the dumbest guy I have ever read.

    Widescreen is the fucking company that was handling the port jackass.

    It’s astonishing that you can link to an article and yet somehow completely fail to read the actual words within it.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. blackdreamhunk

    you people are nick picking over little mishaps. the agin the point is prodcution costs on consoles are big! Pc gaming is cheaper to make.

    By the way the murder of game developers is not condoned on this site as far as I know.

  33. Blerk

    The other side do have facts. Better facts than yours, indeed, as they are usually ‘facts’ as opposed to ‘what I think inside my head’. You just never bother to read them.

    You constantly mention Crysis and Warhead as prime examples of PC gaming.

    It’s almost like Crysis 2 was not even announced…

    BDH – when you said “Pc games are cheaper to make than console games. In fact pc gaming is becoming so profitable game devs no longer need a publisher”, are you sure you weren’t actually talking about the iPhone?

    This just in: the iPhone is killing console gaming!

    #46 5 years ago

    Dear bdh,

    Will I have to buy a new $400 DirectX 11 upgrade for my 360 so that I can get better depth of field effects for Crysis 2?
