The PC may not be the lead platform.
CD Projekt RED isn’t biased toward one console, managing director Adam Badowski revealed. They make sure that all platforms get a quality product and also explained why the PC was the lead platform for The Witcher 2.
“PC was the lead platform for Witcher 2 because it was the most powerful, but that might change in the future,” he told GamesIndustry.
“We know a lot about the next gen platforms that we can’t comment on yet, but our strategy is that we’re always trying to maximise the quality for the platform, to use its particular strengths and advantages. Usually the weakest platform dictates the quality for all platforms, but high-quality visuals are our trademark so we need to approach each platform as individually as possible.”
He also revealed that the PC platform allows for more but next gen consoles could change all that.
“PC allows for more at the moment, but new platforms are stepping up. In the future, it should be much easier to unify the requirements. Some things, like control schemes, will still need to be tailored to the platforms but the new platforms will unify requirements,” he added.
The game will be released in 2014 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox 720.
