Default Witcher 3 - Status and The Witcher Mobile Game

March 19th, 2014, 14:09
GameBanshee brings the news that a NeoGaf forum member translated CD Project Red's 2014 financial report, in which they mention the current status of The Witcher 3, work on a mobile adventure game of The Witcher.

About their plans for 2014 with respect to new developments:

  • Witcher comics - digital and paper
  • Continuous intensive marketing action for TW3
  • Witcher 3 preorders
  • Release of The Witcher Adventure Game (board game) - Q3 2014
  • 2 mobile titles: The Witcher Adventure Game and a new multiplatform project.
  • Together with an external development studio we are working on the multiplatform mobile game, which uses advanced features of tablets and smartphones
  • We are entering a completely new territory, both in terms of gameplay and business model
  • Work on the project began over a year ago, independently from TW3 and Cyberpunk 2077.
  • The game will be announced together with beta sign-up.
  • Commercial release this year.
And about The status of The Witcher 3:

Finished:
  • Dialogue lines are closed & implemented
  • They are currently recording voice overs for each language version of the game
  • The world of the game is completed - locations are finished, all important gameplay mechanics are already implemented
  • Graphic assets and animations are nearing completion
  • The game can already be played in full
  • REDengine 3 supports all 3 platforms
  • The physical elements of the collector's edition are in production
What's left:
  • Implementation of the remaining side quests
  • Importing voice overs and testing their quality/changing them
  • Gameplay testing and balancing
  • Continuous work on improving the quality of graphic assets, animations, effects and sounds - this will last until just before going gold
  • REDengine3 optimization
The reasoning behind the 2015 release:
  • Less competition
  • Improved effectiveness of marketing campaign targeted at aware gamers and not random gift-buyers.
  • Better polished game: the last 20% of time stands for 80% of the game's attractiveness.
  • More new-gen consoles on the market = more customers
More information.
