I don't know, I still wouldn't feel comfortable if The Witcher's developers had merely glanced at the Aurora source code but then promptly formatted the disk and entombed it at the bottom of the Marina Trench in a lead-lined casket. The Aurora engine is like the One Ring - it corrupts all it touches. KotOR, KotOR II, NWN, NWN II: all were buggy (except NWN), with poor performance, horrible camera control, and had maps the size of postage stamps that took longer to load than ten cells in Morrowind.

The Witcher screenshots say, "Hey kids! Rich open environments la Morrowind or Gothic", but thus far the Aurora engine and its spawn have only delivered tiny on-a-rail environments that would make even a sardine feel claustrophobic.
