The Witcher 3 doesn't have QTEs, says CD Projekt RED

In a long interview, Lead Gameplay Designer Maciej Szcześnik confirmed that QTEs are definitely out of The Witcher 3, for the assured pleasure of those gamers who hate Quick Time Events. (CD Projekt RED, PC, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox One)

I am liking Everything I hear about this game and its pretty.

indeed QTE is the worst invention to ever plague games.. They can turn a great game into a crap game. I will avoid a game no matter how great it is if it has a lot of QTE in it. It's why I don't play God Of War..

Thank the Lord, dislike them with a passion. loving the sound of this game so far.

QTE is shit . I'm wondering who the F*** brought this stupid crap idea to video games in the first place !
FFFFFFFFFFFFFF him .!.

Shenmue made it popular... only one of the most respected games of all time.

Shenmue did QTE well imo

i believe it was the game dragons lair that brought qte's. but i didnt play pc games back then so i could be mistaken and it could have been some other game

Dragons lair came out in 1983 and i am pretty sure it was the first. And actually i enjoyed playing that game.

QTE is a game mechanic like aiming down sights, hiding behind cover, stealth etc.. its how game devs use it thats the problem

A developer as good as CD project RED doesn't need to take cheap shortcuts with scripted animations, their new combat system looks fantastic and really seamless.

QTEs are the MK3/Killer Instinct "dial-a-combo" of the action game world.

Pure crap.
MysticStrummer  +   554d ago
They remind me more of Dragon's Lair, hitting the right button at the right time to advance the action, though QTEs are more obvious about which button to hit.

I don't mind them in moderation, but they can definitely be overused.
Fishy Fingers  +   554d ago
Don't mind the occasional QTE myself, if it's a boss battle or something I don't mind the final few blows being QTEs rather than just watching them play out with no interaction with the gamer. But again, occasional tends to get more and more, so I'd rather have none, than every other move.
Eamon  +   553d ago
I agree. I remember the Dragon battle and how there were only 2-3 QTE which occurred right at the end.

It definitely is better than simply watching the boss fall without no user input.
DARK WITNESS  +   554d ago
Well thats it boys, we need to start a petition !

No more QTE's in our games !
progaor2013  +   554d ago
qtes is that same thing like ps3 game asuras wratch and gow ascension where u hit the buttons like l1 r1 together or triangle at right moment if so i hate that crap.

new tomb raider had them also so did final fantasy 13-2
progaor2013  +   554d ago
i want this game but i never played witcher 1 or 2 since they r microsoft pc or xbox eclusive i own neither i need new gpu badly

Im glad there are no QTE's.

QTE in video games is like Slow Motion in movies
Both are powerful tools heavily misused and overused.

I tend to agree.
Definitely some games have abused of QTEs recently, as movies did with slow motion, but both can be perfectly fitting if properly implemented.
Festano  +   553d ago
I continue to hear good news about this. If they continue like this will become one of the most popular trilogy from the people.
Plagasx  +   553d ago
Praise jesus. The less QTE's in games, the better.

Did anyone notice QTEs in Ryse? Actually it should be other way round, "Did anyone see Ryse gameplay between those QTEs?"
