CD Projekt Red: We “missed something” with the other Witcher games


Red has shown that it can develop a “modern-RPG,” a game with non-linear storytelling, excellent characters and a rich world with the past The Witcher titles. Now, the developer wants to bring all of those elements to , its open world game.

“We decided that we were ready for the next step,” studio head Adam Badowski told . “We decided to combine two types of games. We mastered storytelling in RPG games — that’s our strongest side. On the other hand, we feel that we missed something. We missed the huge freedom of open-world games like Skyrim.”

It’s important because for the first time The Witcher doesn’t have chapters, acts, or other artificial breakpoints, Geralt’s story is what you make it. The Witcher 3 is expected for a 2014 release on PC and “all high-end platforms available.”
