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".

Please oh pwease atop deving for the x1 and teach them a lesson

BattleTorn1590d ago

I'm sure they currently have.

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.

(hint: probably not in our lifetimes)

wishingW3L1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

they don't do it for MS, they do it for their fans that are on MS's console.

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"

talisker1589d ago

They actually did it today.

Sharius1589d 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.....

T21589d 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.

Cueil1589d ago

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

I bet they regret revealing it at Microsofts Xbox One conference now. Lol

They should've revealed it at Sony's:)

RiPPn1590d ago

Sure they're not too sad as they admire their Microsoft money hat.

Blackdeath_6631590d ago (Edited 1590d ago )

the CD Projekt Red devs i have the upmost respect for i hope they are really successful with witcher 3 and more importantly cyberpunk 2077 because they make great games. everyone knew witcher3 was coming and it was no surprise whether that was revealed at MS or at sony doesn't differ much most of their fans are on pc anyways

stuntman_mike1590d ago

i was really surprised they showed up at the XB1 conference, as they are really against DRM in games?

Roccetarius1590d ago (Edited 1590d ago )

I think it sent a mixed message to people, because MS is going anti consumer with their console. However, i still have faith in CDPR to do the right thing.

1nsomniac1590d ago

People seem to forget so easily. They originally were the primary developer to make a huge fuss about forcing DRM on people publically until Anonymous & co protested by pirating their game in force.

It was only then that CD Projekt completely reversed their stance on DRM & vowed it was a horrible thing that they wouldn't do again.

Funny how all of a sudden no one remembers that part.... Still despite all this they are an aweome dev & I have Witcher 3 on pre-order.

stuntman_mike1590d ago


I didnt know that about cd project, they are also bed fellows with too another company who prides themselves with no drm.

DeadlyFire1589d ago

I don't think they really knew it would have such DRM on the console.

They got screwed kind of....they will learn this lesson and everyone will understand when their next game is PS4 exclusive.

NatureOfLogic1590d ago

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

Cueil1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

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

brianunfried1590d ago

Keeps getting better by the minute for Microsoft.

3-4-51590d ago

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

It's actually happening though.

T21589d 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.

MorfiTM1589d ago

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