CD Projekt's Tom Ohle on The Witcher and More from Tom's Games
Last October, saw the release of CD Projekt's fantasy role-playing game for the PC, The Witcher. While the game did not offer any multiplayer features and was generally overshadowed by bigger-name and more heavily hyped titles, the Witcher was still a tremendous success. Critics gave the title rave reviews (including a "9 out of 10" from Tom's Games own Ryan Lord). In addition, the PC exclusive sold 600,000 copies in its first three months, according to CD Projekt.
Tom's Games: Are there any plans to bring The Witcher to the Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3?
Tom Ohle: We don't have anything specific planned yet, but console versions of The Witcher are definitely in consideration. If and when we do a console version of the game, it has to stand up against other top titles on that platform, and that means a significant investment of time and money. We won't just release a straight port.
