E3 2011: The Witcher 2 heading to the Xbox 360
The Witcher 2 is no longer exclusive to PC. CD Projekt just revealed that The Witcher 2 is heading to the Xbox 360. Finally, more people will get to experience this great game. With it being a PC exclusive on release and a very demanding game in terms of spec, people couldn't get The Witcher 2. A lot of console gamers were praying for a console release, well there ya go, your prayers have been answered. Now that the console version is happening, can we ask for the Witcher 1 port too while their at it?
IGN interviewed John Mamais, executive producer at CD Projekt Red after the announcement to get more information about the console version.
The interview provided good information about this console port. The Witcher 2 just might be one of the best looking games out there and porting this massive game to the console will take time. They haven't announced a release date for the Xbox version but is aiming for an end of the year release. They won't be rushing this project since they aim to make the Xbox 360 version in par with the PC version in terms of graphics and performance.
Future DLC for the Witcher 2 will be included in the console version and any new cut scenes or content created for the 360 version will also be implemented for the PC all for free.
The Witcher 2's feel and play would fit perfectly in a 360 controller. It was planned to get a console version but they wanted to stay loyal to the PC community by focusing on the PC version first. it's understandable and this is great news indeed. I'm currently on Act 2 in The Witcher 2 and loving every minute of the game. So there, Xbox 360 owners, look out for the console version of The Witcher 2: assassin of Kings either next year or the end of 2011.
