CD Projekt showing “brand-new project,” rumored Witcher game at E3

CD Projekt RED has said it is to announce a new project at E3 this year.

According to email invites sent out, a presentation will be given which will last around 30-45 minutes and will provide ” key facts and a live gameplay demo.”

The firm has confirmed to Eurogamer that it is not The Witcher 2 for consoles, nor is it an expansion pack for the game either.

However, a while ago Eurogamer UK posted word that a Witcher game will be announced as well which may be of interest to the console crowd.

“I can’t say anything obviously for gazillions of reasons but it is a Witcher game, and I can say that console gamers might be interested in it,” explained Witcher 2 senior producer Tomasz Gop.

We sent a mail for a bit of clarification on this, and came away more confused than originally.

According to a PR representative speaking for the firm speaking to VG247: “The story was a bit of a misunderstanding. We aren’t really commenting on what the project is, beyond to say that it’s a game.

“CD Projekt RED will be showing off a new project at the show, and we can’t confirm nor deny any rumors about what it is.”

So, once again, hurry the hell up E3.
