CD Projekt RED’s Pawel Sasko also shares some new details on the story.
In our interview with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt quest designer PaWel Sasko, we learned a bit more about the game’s story, including how it will be wrapping up the trilogy.
Sasko first enlightened us a bit about protagonist Geralt’s motivations. “As players know, a sterile Witcher does not have any true kin. But Geralt of Rivia managed to build an extremely strong bond with one important woman – a sorceress who was long gone, Yennefer. She was always his true love.
“But there is another important person around, very familiar to Witcher fans, Triss Merigold. Geralt is going to finally resolve his relationships and stand to protect those whom he loves. As he moves on, this is his new focus in life. In Geralt’s morally ambiguous life there was not too much space for his beloved ones, but that is going to change.”
He also stated that the game “is the conclusion of the trilogy of Geralt of Rivia and we want players to be satisfied. That’s why we’ve invested a lot of time and energy into crafting multiple endings.” Sasko says that each closing sequence is hours long, and as we know already, the world can be in 36 different states by the time all is said and done.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently scheduled to release at the end of 2014 for PS4, PC and other next-gen platforms.
