Wild Hunt to be the final Witcher game, grab the first two on sale now

Witcher 3

By on February 6, 2013 at 6:22 pm

The third installment of The Witcher franchise was announced yesterday, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Today, CD Projekt RED have come forward to say that this will be the last Witcher game. According to a press release, the CD Projekt RED team want to end the series on a high note.

“Technology has progressed to where we can finally tell the story the way we want, with the visuals we want, in the world we imagined. This will be the ultimate fantasy RPG experience, and while we’re hardly out of stories to tell, we believe it’s time for us to look to new worlds and new horizons to keep pushing the boundaries of what we can create.”

To celebrate this announcement and to encourage people to play the other two games, The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings, both Enhanced Editions, are on sale on GOG.com and Steam for a very short while. If you haven’t played them, I highly recommend picking them up, especially at these criminally low prices. The original Witcher is $5 on both GOG.com and Steam, while Assassin of Kings is strangely $15 at GOG.com but only $10 on Steam.

Devs say that so often its lost all meaning.

I’m keen for them to take a break if they feel they need to, I just hope they’re not deciding to never make Witcher 4 just for the sake of having a “trilogy”.

 

have you seen the witcher 2?

that shit is banana’s.

believe.

Took the words out of my mouth! WHY AREN’T POTATO!

 

Would it be too hard to have Press Releases attached to articles like this so that people don’t have to hunt them down to read the full ones?
