Company co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer the reason was because “We are treating all gamers equally,” and that doing so would be against the values of the developer.
“We’ll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody’s paying us money for that. It’s definitely against our values. We are not doing that.”
Iwinski then went on to hint about other features being included into the game surrounding online connectivity, with a suggestion towards a form of social sharing being introduced.
Iwinski said that The Witcher 3 will be making an appearance at E3 next month; however it is not yet known whether the game will be appearing on stage, but he remains hopeful. If they do it will be interesting who will be championing the game this year, after the game formed a good part of Microsoft’s presentation last year.
“What we are doing in terms of marketing cooperation, you’ll see that at E3.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due for release in February 2015 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
It’s good to see CD Projekt Red avoid the temptation for more money in favour of treating the games fans the same across all platforms, which is rather uncommon nowadays. What are your thoughts on this standpoint? What would you like to see in terms of online features?
