Rumor: The Witcher 2 PS3-Bound
Update: This game will be available for the 360, but we didn't know if it was coming to the PS3.
It seems like nothing can remain exclusive these days.
Not long after the confirmation that Blizzard would bring Diablo III to consoles, it now seems possible that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings may also make the leap to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game has been out for almost a year on PC; it received widespread critical acclaim and sold quite well, so maybe it's no surprise that publisher Atari wants to expand the reach of the game's sales potential. Besides, after about ten and a half months on the market, sales have long since topped out; might as well try for another surge on different platforms, right? And according to European site Nienagrani.pl, that's going to happen: A newspaper advertisement clearly shows PS3 and 360 box shots of The Witcher 2 and we see developer Techland mentioned.
The interesting part is that it appears to be clarified that the ad was not a mistake. Hence, should we assume that the team responsible for nail'd and Dead Island is going to try to handle the console port...? We'll have to wait and see on that one. But as is the case with Diablo III, we still have to wonder if certain games are simply best played on a particular platform...
