The Witcher: Battle Arena Focused on Mobile Due to PC Crowded With MOBAs
Developer interested in trying new things though.
CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher: Battle Arena caught many a player’s eye due to it being a multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA title for mobiles, and that too one from the famed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer. If a game like this exists, wouldn’t it benefit the dev to bring it to PC?
CD Projekt RED’s Tadek Zieliński actually told Rock Paper Shotgun that, “The game is built in Unity Engine, so technically it would be possible [to bring the game to PC]. That being said, the PC MOBA market is pretty much full of awesome games so we’re focusing on mobile for now.”
Zieliński also said that Battle Arena is attempt to test the waters. “Our mission, as you probably know, is to create the best RPGs in the world, and that doesn’t change. But if there is a good idea floating around that’s beneficial to the community, and also in line with our philosophy, then why not have a stab at it? If we can uphold the quality we strive to uphold, and be fair with gamers, we’re always eager to do new things.”
The Witcher: Battle Arena will be out this Fall for mobiles. Stay tuned for more details.
