The third person storytelling doesn’t lend itself to VR.
There is very little doubt that CD Projekt RED has some serious interest in the budding Virtual Reality technology. That doesn’t appear to mean the company is ever going to use it on games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Konrad Tomaszkiewicz recently sat down with Examiner.com and talked about what his company felt about the VR tech and why they likely won’t be using it.
“With great curiosity, just like every other emerging technology. As for your other question. Pretty hard to say, the technology is still very young. Plus, The Witcher is a [third-person perspective] game and VR is something that gravitates naturally to [first-person perspective],” Tomaszkiewicz said.
With that in mind, we can still get excited about the game’s final piece of DLC, which will likely always be for the console only. Check out our interview about Geralt’s final mission for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and get ready for the last DLC to land at the end of this month.
