In a recent interview with OXM, CD Projekt’s Konrad Tomaszkiewicz and Jakub Stylinski explained why their critically acclaimed game, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be making its way from PC to the Xbox 360, but not the PS3…
“It’s our first experience with consoles – we’ve only worked on the PC until now, and we wanted to make a really good adaptation of our game,” Tomaszkiewicz began. “We’ve used the same team who worked on the PC version to make a really good adaptation.”
“We’ve used the same team who worked on the PC version to make the transition to Xbox, mainly because when we tried to outsource the first Witcher, it ended up being a bad experience. We could have tried to bring it to other consoles, but we just wanted to focus on the one platform.”
“Our team isn’t that large – we can’t focus on three platforms at once,” Stylinski said. “What we’re doing now is making the same additional content for PC and Xbox, and if we were working on PS3 too we just wouldn’t be able to get it all done.”
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be available on the Xbox 360, April 17th. CD Projekt RED has stated this will be the “most polished and definitive version of the game”.
