The Witcher 2 May or May Not See a Console Release
Without question, The Witcher was one of my favorite games of 2007. This should have been blatantly obvious to anyone who read by giddy E3 preview of the upcoming sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
When we saw The Witcher 2, we were also told that the game would be releasing on PC, and maybe PS3 and XBox 360. Those console versions, much like CDProjekt’s previous console announcement Rise of the White Wolf, may now never see the light of day.
In a statement to Eurogamer, senior producer Tomasz Gop described the Witcher 2 on console as “potential,” and that it would not be likely that it would release alongside the PC version even it was was decided to make it. This is bad news for console gamers, but at least “potential” still holds out some hope.
The PC version is still on track for its scheduled March 2011 release.
