CD Projekt RED a bit “bummed” it took this long to release a Witcher game on PlayStation platforms.
get to it cd project red! ps4 is dominating so insane right now you will have a ton of more people to get to experience your previous games on ps4.
It'd be pretty easy money. Maybe they could outsource the porting process.
Why not whack a cheap port together? Everyone else is doing it, and with less valid reason than CD Projekt have.
@Volkama CD Projekt RED doesn't strike me as the kind of team that would put together a cheap port. They have way too much pride in their work.
Witcher 1 would probably need an entire overhaul. Its and old crappy engine that they don't even use anymore. CDPR isn't about "easy money", which is why they are so great.
It's funny how so many console only gamers say that the PC has no good exclusives, yet they constantly beg for them in other articles.
@aliengmr and slasaru01 You dont know crap the witcher enhanced edition looks great.
Play it on PC. It has perks. 1. The game isn't too taxing so you should be able to play if you have a decently recent PC. 2. The story carries over so if you play The Witcher 3 on PC you can carry on progress.
3. SUPER CHEAP
I played W2 on my xbox and it was great. Tried W1 at PC and the experience is terrible both in controls and graphics. No way i will be playing W3 on PC. But in the other hand, they will have a gamepad support...
And if you want to play on ps4 or you have to play on ps4? (I played witcher 2 on pc it was a great game however I will be playijg the 3rd on ps4 and I am concerned that my story choices are to be lost :( )
@slasaru01 - Ummm, you played Witcher 1 on PC... That's not Witcher 2. The controls are very different on Witcher 2.
Please, stay way from console articles, you are always bringing pc in the conversation, always, you are just a cheap stealth troll with only one platform. About the article, i'm sorry for the players who want to play, for me, the previous games are way overrated, i agree with Edge review.
"play it on PC" WOW, Did you honestly think that hasn't crossed my mind before? My LAPTOP will not run it, otherwise I would play it in a heartbeat Stone me the world is getting stupider by the minute
They have yet to actually smell the coffee.id buy past two full price with graphics upgrades of course lol
I would play the first Witcher again on whatever it was released on if it had gamepad support and slightly tweaked combat. Overall The Witcher on PC is still an incredible game.
Yes, they would definitely need to tweak the combat for the first one. Maybe take the opportunity to re-think the sex cards.
It's likely a combination of undisclosed exclusivity and resources. Look forward to an announcement late next year. The PS4 plays very nice with PC ports.
You want to play Witcher 1 and 2 on PS4 months after you already played 3? Get it on PC.
I know I'm responding late, however I have them both on PC. The benefit is to sell the experience to the multiple millions that only have the PS4 and/or have transitioned from the PS3. If the margins for profit is there and there are no active restrictions in place you will see it happen (W2 that is).
Undisclosed exclusivity? No, that's not how CDPR does things. I highly doubt they will port the other 2 games. Witcher 2? Maybe. Witcher 1? No way in hell. Really doubt they want to go back to that old, busted engine for one. And using their new engine to recreate the entire game would just be a waste of time and money. Its not about CDPR "not wanting" to do it, its just they really don't see a profit there. Besides, its time they move on to their new games any way.
1 I agree that W2 is the only product than can be leverage as part of a port. 2 CDProjeckt had an undisclosed exclusivity agreement with MS. And they have been compensated to show W3 in an association with XBOXOne. There's is nothing wrong with this by the way. Just wanted to point out that these types of partnerships exist and I haven't seen one independent developer that's above it. It's good for everyone involved (Except for exclusive console owners). 3 Profit should and will be had where it can be realized. 4 Sorry for responding so late :)
Sigh. Oh, well. I'm still going to enjoy the Witcher 3 regardless.
Complain when compains release remasters on PS4 Complain when they don't :/
People who generalize...
difference being the witchers were never on any Sony console so if you were a sony only player you'd never have had the opportunity to play it before... TLOU, Tomb Raider and GTA, now they're just money grabbers as the games are a little over a year old realize TLOU is a Sony exclusive but it's less than a year old that's what i find farcical about it
But when 50% of PS4 owners didn't own a PS3.. What's the difference?
@uth the whole less than a year old thing.... also that 50% was based on january/february figures i believe so it's roughly 2.5mil that haven't experience it (or the sample size lied on a survey always that possibility) either way you look at it it's still a money grab and it's farcical
So they don't want us to figure out what the hell is going on?
They plan to release something for next gen. Probably something like what was done for ME2, though I believe they are still deciding on what to do.
They are actually quite good story tellers. Based on the way 2 was delivered, I am sure you will be able to enjoy 3 without playing the others. But they're good games and certainly worth playing if you have the means.
The Witcher 3 is my most anticipated game (haven't played the first two) and I'd prefer they focus on cyberpunk 2077.
CD projekt red: we hate money.
CD project red: we hate the lowest common denominator.
They aren't a massive team, guys. I don't think it would make any sense for them to remake the first two titles for PS3 and PS4.
Ah. I would have loved an Remastered collection on current gen consoles. I started playing Witcher 2 and really enjoyed, but the graphics felt so dated.
The Witcher 2...dated graphics? Huh?! The Witcher 2, on PC at least, can hang with ANY new gen game easily. I actually still think it looks better than most new gen games. I haven't played the 360 version, but I heard it was one of the best looking games on the 360. Which all leads me to believe that you are just trolling.
Yeah the game is beautiful and even the original Witcher looks okay, certainly not ugly. As for the 360 version it is easily one of the best looking games on the system. It is a sub HD version pretty much
I'm not trolling. I thought the graphics didn't look that great, imo. (on the 360) They were pretty but nothing to go on about, and I though a remaster treatment would do it good, also it would let more people follow the story if the first two games came to current gen.
Pretty much any PC should be able to play the first Witcher so I don't see what the issue is,
No worries most of us Playstation fans have great PC and if we want to play Witcher 2 or 1 we can just use our PC . Just Finnish Witcher 3 and keep people working on Cyberpunk 2077.
A lot of people don't have money to be spending on a Pc.
Neither to do the developers to waste on a port or man power to stop an ongoing project to rehash some game people can play on other platforms. Best thing for them is just to keep working on Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.
Well it's up to them, but i tell you this, if they put The Witcher 1&2 remastered or something on ps4 i would definitely buy that.
Guys if you want to play Get it on Pc simple!!;)
They say other platforms Dont have exclusives worth playing but constantly beg for them
That's fine with me. I prefer they focus and release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 first. Then maybe after they can consider porting games.
