The Witcher 3 has not been announced, despite what you might read
A few overzealous websites have been reporting today that CD Projekt Red had announced The Witcher 3 last night during a press briefing. Reports suggested that the sequel to The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings would launch simultaneously on 360, PS3 and PC sometime in 2013.
However, that is not the case. CD Projekt Red has made it perfectly clear that no such announcement was made.
“Now that is a surprise – I was at that conference as a matter of fact and I can assure you nothing of the sort was announced,” CD Projekt VP of business development, Michael Nowakowski said.
“You can actually watch that conference yourself at our Facebook site and I assure you we did not say a single word on Witcher 3, its release dates, and platforms. I can 100% confirm, we have not announced Witcher 3.
“The purpose of the conference was to unveil the details of X360 launch of Witcher 2with the release date of 17th of April 2012, launch on the same day of PC Enhanced Edition, and reveal of some new features for both versions we did not speak about before. That is it.”
So, there you go. The Witcher 3 was not announced.
