CD Projekt has said the inclusion of sex in The Witcher 2 is only “creative freedom,” adding it’s not putting in just for the sake of it.

“I think games are evolving. At the beginning the audience was a bit different and some people still think games are for children. We believe that’s not true,” lead artist Marek Ziemak told CVG.

“Our opinion is that they’re like interactive movies. You can compare it to reading a book or watching a good series on TV because there’s a deep storyline and our target definitely is a mature audience.”

He continued: “We’re using all the stuff that’s being used by other authors and creators like writers or movie directors. It’s not about delivering sex just to have sex in your game, it’s about creative freedom and having the same opportunities and using the same weapons as all the other creative people.”

Ziemak’s remarks come ahead of the RPG’s 360 release next month on April 17. The title launched on PC last May.
