The Witcher 2 Coming To Xbox One Via Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility
That’s two out of three!
If you were a fan of CD Projekt RED’s exemplary The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and have been interested in playing the previous games in the series, then Microsoft and CD Projekt RED will make it at least a little easier for you- The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which launched on the Xbox 360 in 2012, will be made available on the Xbox One via the console’s backwards compatibility feature.
CD Projekt RED’s community manager Marcin Momot has confirmed on Twitter that the second game in the franchise will be made available on the Xbox 360 in the future- though an exact date has not yet been nailed down. This news came alongside the slightly disappointing news that there probably won’t be any remasters of the older games for the current generation systems.
