The going consensus seems to be that the best RPG released for the PC so far this year was not BioWare’s Dragon Age II, but rather CD Projekt’s The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. GamesRadar gave the mature RPG a glowing review, awarding it with a perfect score. It’s already been reported that Witcher 2 developer CD Projekt has had plans for a console version of the game. So it’s exciting to hear an official announcement that console owners will have the pleasure of playing The Witcher 2 when it releases for the Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
“We are not compromising any quality. The Witcher 2 will not be dumbed down for consoles,” said one CD Projekt representative during the company’s summer conference call. The developer is hoping to preserve all of the game’s complexity and mature content. However, in regards to The Witcher 2’s gorgeous visuals, you can expect the game’s textures to take a bit of a dip in the console version when compared to how the game looks on a high-end gaming rig. But according to CD Projekt, “It’s not the size of the boat that matters; it’s the motion in the ocean.”
CD Projekt had nothing to say about a PlayStation 3 version of the RPG, but the developer did announce plans to have the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 on show at E3 2011 – and GamesRadar will be there to let you know how the console version compares to the PC original.
