CD Projekt RED to produce summaries of Witcher 1 and 2, no PlayStation ports planned

PSU writes:

"In an exclusive conversation with PSU, game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz revealed that CD Projekt RED will be producing some kind of summary of the previous games in the series so that first-time Witcher players aren't left in the dark.

"The Wild Hunt is a standalone story and does not require you to play the previous games," he said. "Additionally, to give you that additional background if you want to broaden your knowledge on the universe, we’ll release sum ups of the previous games so you won’t miss a thing!"

The story is too old to be commented.

That stinks there will be no PS ports of the first two games, they are really good.

Luckily I was able to play them, but anyone who hasn't is missing out.

those games are cool only when you can follow patch from first to third... half fun goes away without that, maybe they could develop those on ps4, i wish.

Sounds similar to the comic they added to ME2 for the PS3 version (prior to the "Complete Trilogy" coming out a few years later).

I already played 1 and 2 on PC but I'll be getting W3 on my PS4, but it would be nice if I was able to duplicate my major choices via a comic or some sort of pre-game menu.

It's a shame that there are no ports planned. I really hoped for it. I might pick them up for PC as soon as I build a new rig though.

no forget that witcher 2 is awesome. this developer needs a trilogy in the future for the ps. i can live with whatever but cmon. 3 looks amazing and i believe this one will skyrocket this company. best wishes man

They should do something simple for PS4 gamers to set up the few minor choices from prior games that will effect TW3.

minor :D ? good one :)

that sucks, good thing i have a 360 and will carry my progress over

Will the progress even carry over though?

There was practically no impact from the choices you made in TW if you imported your save into TW2. There was a couple extra lines of dialogue, and in the case of Shandi they just retconed your decision so you end up with Triss.

Judging from what I've seen about the story I didn't see anything to indicate that TW3 will be much different.

I like the games, but I don't think your choices carrying over across games was ever as central to this series as it was to series like Mass Effect.

CrossingEden1931d ago

they confirmed that you can carry your story over last week -_-

Hydralysk1931d ago

I'm sure it'll carry over, the ones from TW1 carried over into TW2. I'm saying that the impact from those choices probably won't be that significant.

Well that's expected but unfortunate, maybe we'll see some kind of trilogy pack a couple of years after release if demand and sales are high enough ala Mass Effect.
