Default The Witcher - Two Canceled Expansions

January 1st, 2014, 17:05
Well this came as surprise to me did you know The Witcher once had two expansions being developed. It's no wonder they were canceled either based on this Eurogamer article.

That's right CD Project was almost bankrupt at one time. Anyway here are the expansion details. Feel free to discuss this in the comment section.


The Witcher: Scars of Betrayal
The Witcher: Scars of Betrayal is a canceled add-on for The Witcher. It was in development by Ossian Studios for some time in 2008 but was canceled due to issues on CD Projekt RED's end.

Very little is known about Scars of Betrayal. It took place in a troubled mountain village, with the kind of problem that only a Witcher can solve. The add-on was to shift the gameplay focus further to choices and outcomes.
The Witcher: Outcast
Outcast was going to be released as DLC in most countries and have a disc release in some countries, like Poland and Russia. It was in development from late 2007 until around mid-2008, when it was canceled by CD Projekt RED.

The story takes place in the early part of Geralt’s life, before he is established as a Witcher, during the reign of King Videmont of Aedirn (around 1190). It takes place in the Skellige Isles off the west coast, on an island ruled by jarl Harald. Many years ago, a monster attacked Harald’s pregnant wife Morganna. In return, Harald went out to slay the monster, with the help of the gnome Shiltzen. As payment, Shiltzen demanded Harald’s firstborn, but when Morganna gave birth, she bore twins. Seeing that the second child was monstrous, Harald gave that child to Shiltzen instead of the firstborn Astrid.
