Witcher 3 will have “no exclusive content for any platform” and will be shown at either the PlayStation or Xbox E3 press conferences

12_The_Witcher_3_Wild_Hunt_Cliff_FightThe Witcher 3 showed off it’s first gameplay at Microsoft’s E3 Press conference last year, and promised to have optional Smartglass and Kinect integration in the game.  This has since lead many to speculate if the game would have platform exclusive content, not unlike many of Ubisoft’s titles.  CD Projekt Red’s co-founder Marcin Iwinski spoke to Eurogamer recently to dispell those rumors before they got off the ground.

“We’ll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody’s paying us money for that. It’s definitely against our values. We are not doing that.”  This should come as a relief to all gamers, as now everyone will get the full game.   “We are treating all gamers equally,” Iwinski continued.

Iwinski did say that they will be doing “marketing cooperation” with either Xbox One or PS4, and we will learn which one at E3 2014.  For those who don’t know, marketing cooperation usually entails the trailers for the game ending with a specific platform, either PlayStation or Xbox, shown at the end of the commercial.  In the words of Bobby “The Brain” Heenan “But who’s side is he on????”  Will they be continuing the relationship they started with Microsoft back with The Witcher 2? Or will they be jumping to Sony and marketing with the PS4?  I’m sure we’ll learn during one of the two major press conferences at E3 2014 on June 9th.

    Good to hear!

    Having content tied to one console only is a frustrating trend, only topped by creating loads of items and giving them to retailers as “exclusives.”
