Despite being released on various platforms including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game will feature “no exclusive content for any platform” so said its developers CD Projekt RED.
CD Projekt RED Co-founder, Marcin Iwinsk, told Eurogamer: “We are treating all gamers equally. 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. It’s definitely against our values. We are not doing that.”
Although there will be no platform exclusive content, each console will have its own marketing strategies and campaigners for the game.
Iwinsk teased that we’ll learn more at E3 saying: “What we are doing in terms of marketing co-operation” he added, “you’ll see that at E3.”
At last years E3, The Witcher 3 was showcased on Microsoft’s centre stage but there’s no telling who will be hosting the game this year. The PC, PS4, or Xbox One? Developers tend to go with the PC since it is so capable of showing off the graphics but it’s anyone’s guess at this point.
Iwinsk also mentioned that some social sharing features might be included in the game but he wouldn’t explain much. “We will be talking about it when the time comes,” he said, which might mean E3. “It’s too early right now.”
The game is set to be released in February 2015 and so far looks fantastic. The game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but not the PS3 or Xbox 360 as the developers thought this would limit the games potential. Projekt Red have also said that they will max each console to its limit regardless of whether that means one may look slightly better than the other. However, they were quick to say that this shouldn’t bother gamers.
