CD Projekt Red Clears the Air Re: Witcher 2

Following their official statement regarding the leaked video of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, CD Projekt Red have answered several questions posed about the content of said video. In particular:

– The video is about six months old, and was based on an early alpha version intended for publishers. It does not reflect the current state of the game engine or story.

– The voices were fill-ins by team members for the video alone. Real actors will be used for the actual game. Apparently, nobody on staff was fond of Geralt’s voice in the video either.

– Most of the team who worked on The Witcher will be working on Assassins of Kings. Senior producer Tom Gop confirmed that some staffers have been cut, largely due to the development freeze for the console adaptation Rise of the White Wolf.

– There is no available release date for Witcher 2. CDPR are still in the process of securing a publisher, and as such trailers and other official materials won’t be available for some time.

Witcher 2 will be using a new engine developed by CDPR, as opposed to the Aurora engine from the first game. Specifications will be available with the game’s official announcement.

– Although Witcher 2 is set for the PC platform, the developers “also want to release the console version.” More information to follow with the official announcement.
