@That video: Did that guy said this will be the conclusion of the trilogy? I hope it doesn't mean the end of The Witcher games.

From the list of changes/improvements:

-Press the left trigger to turn on Geralt’s witcher senses. I hope this doesn't mean that they are developing it with a gamepad as the main input device.

-The team is deciding between using a handful of in-combat special moves for particular attacks and a slow-motion quick-time event style. So between what the style they had in the first or the one in the second? I may be the minority, but I liked the style of the first one.

Also, a change I don't see mentioned is the menu/inventory. I really dislike it in The Witcher 2 and I hope they change it too.

Anyway, very excited about this news. I'm sure it will be a great game.

Yeah it seems this is the last witcher game, makes me soo sad to think its coming to an end .

But i can see this game being one of the most epic games ever cos of that

OK, this is sounding incredibly epic now. I hope they manage to put in horse combat, that could be quite fun.

As much as I love the Witcher games, I'm not too worried if this is the last.

I mean its the developer CD Projeckt RED that I love it seems.  I have never heard of Witcher before I played the game.  It was an awesome game.  I doubt just the mythology of Witcher world made it great.  There are much better fantasy worlds out there than this, yet they don't live up to the awesomeness that was the Witcher games.

I am also really excited for their other game they are making.  That looks sweet too.  

So really as long as this company keeps making games I'll be happy.  So far their track record for games is 100% in my books.

Yep, plus unlike some other devs *CoughBiowareCough* they really care about their fans. I cant wait to see what they will do in the future as atm they have replaced Bioware for me.



“People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is,” said studio head said Adam Badowski.

“Why? Because we believe that we should 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.”

I wonder if the Witcher team will go on to a origonal IP or adapt another universe like they did with Witcher and Cyberpunk.

I hope they will work on an original IP once they finish Witcher. But then i always thought Cyberpunk was an original IP from them x_x lulz xD



Maybe I'm just looking into things too much, but in the dev video at 0:51, are we seeing a slight glimpse of The Witcher 3 in motion in the monitors at the top or is that just some other CDProjekt related video from the past?

Looks like a movie trailer or something

Well it's in the SDK and looks like an animation preview, but sure that model and animation will be in the game.
