The PS4 Won't Be Looting Any Exclusive Content from The Witcher 3
Posted by Robert Ramsey
And neither will anyone else
Platform exclusive downloadable bits and pieces are an expected, but not entirely well received aspect of purchasing video games in modern times. Within days, hours, or even minutes of a title being announced, we're usually swamped with information regarding various add-ons and incentives to try and make you nab a copy of the release on a specific console.
Refreshingly, that won't be the case with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, says Marcin Iwinski, co-founder of developer CD Projekt Red. When asked by Eurogamer.net if the Polish studio will be making an appearance at E3 next month, Iwinski confirms that the upcoming RPG will indeed be hitting the stage.
Usually, this means that the developer will have some sort of deal regarding exclusive content with whichever company's press conference it works its way into, but not this time. "We are treating all gamers equally," he told the publication. "We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that," Iwinski continues, putting down any rumours that the 2015 title will favour a certain brand.
However, it looks as though the studio will be teaming up with a manufacturer in order to market the release, as the co-founder goes on to say that "what we are doing in terms of marketing cooperation, you'll see that at E3". With the biggest event in gaming only mere weeks away, we'll soon find out where Geralt will be making his stand. Would you like to see The Witcher 3 show up at Sony's presser or are you indifferent knowing that the game won't be getting any special treatment on either next-gen platform?
