Xbox One Surprises Witcher Dev, Skips Poland At Launch

As it turns out, nobody at CD Projekt had any idea that this was going to happen. "I was just in a restaurant and saw the list," Iwiński told Game Informer. "I was surprised, and I really hope that it isn't final. I think Polish gamers will speak out loud. From my perspective, it's a sad situation".

Speaking of irony, CDPR has been one of the most outspoken devs AGAINST DRM.

So to have their very own game chained to a DRM driven machine - that surprisingly won't even be supported in their own country at launch - must be incredibly frustrating.

{One of those countries is Poland, home of CD Projekt Red, who is working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for a multiplatform launch that includes Microsoft's console.

We spoke with Marcin Iwinski, co-founder and joint CEO of CD Projekt Red about the matter. "I was just in a restaurant and saw the list," Iwinski told us. "I was surprised, and I really hope that it isn't final. I think Polish gamers will speak out loud. From my perspective, it's a sad situation."}

Hahaha. Lol

XBone bad news it keeps coming.

Well it's coming out on X1, PS4 and PC same day so I guess Poland will have to stick with their pcs or buy a ps4. Don't be sad Poland...PS4 to the rescue.

When are developers going to learn? Don't go with Microsoft, you will have a bad experience.

When Monopolysoft runs out of money.

Sony comes out to the press tomorrow by stating " We are bringing the PS4 to the Poland people the same day as NA and other EU counries"

talisker1806d ago

They actually did it today.

Sharius1806d ago

everybody just calm down, this game will be multiplatform, isn't it?

i think MS will find the way soon, so everyone in unsupport country can play that game.... like....hmmmm...... forget it....just wait till the support coming then.....

T21806d ago

that's not the point ... the point is if you want to play a game, would you wait until the system that may not even have any advantages comes out, or would you just buy a ps4 and play witcher right away....
...Im gonna go out on a limb here and say ps4 kills it in poland.

Poland just recently got native Live support... they've been putting in England addresses and such for a long time now

This will probably cause some devs to skip Xbox one in the future.

Cueil1806d ago (Edited 1806d ago )

Or not... this is a business not a popularity contest... if developers and publishers make money they will release games on the system

brianunfried1807d ago

Keeps getting better by the minute for Microsoft.

If we tried to write this....people would think it's fake.

It's actually happening though.

T21806d ago

I know it's crazy people are coming on here and accusing others of spreading nasty rumours about xbone, but the real sad thing is, they aren't rumour they are just facts... check out darkwitness posts in the gamestop handing out flyers thread where he accuses gamestop of collusion for handing out flyers stating all the xbone restrictions.... the facts are just crazy, you couldn't make this sht up.

MorfiTM1806d ago

But worse for my country (Poland)...though I'll be playing it on PS4 :D
