The Witcher: Battle Arena is a new mobile MOBA from CD Projekt RED. Seeing as The Witcher is predominantly a PC franchise, gamers have been wondering why its not coming to PC. The studio has responded with an explanation.


It follows yesterday’s news that The Witcher Adventure Game beta is now available on PC and Mac. Find out how you can access the board game’s beta through the link.

So why isn’t The Witcher: Battle Arena coming to PC?

Speaking with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, CD Projekt RED’s Tadek Zieliński explained “The game is built in Unity Engine, so technically it would be possible [to bring the game to PC]. That being said, the PC MOBA market is pretty much full of awesome games so we’re focusing on mobile for now.”

As you can see the MOBA’s site lists it for release on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

It seems like CD Projekt is trying to tap into the mobile space competently with a solid release first to cast its net wider, before returning to what it knows best on PC.

Indeed, Zieliński added, “Our mission, as you probably know, is to create the best RPGs in the world, and that doesn’t change. But if there is a good idea floating around that’s beneficial to the community, and also in line with our philosophy, then why not have a stab at it? If we can uphold the quality we strive to uphold, and be fair with gamers, we’re always eager to do new things.”
