Jakub Szamalek has revealed his company's goals in regards to "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 4, the writer from CD Projekt Red disclosed that the studio wants to develop games for the more mature audience. However, he also admitted that their titles may not be for everyone.
"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" is expected to feature a complicated plot that players may have some difficulties trying to understand. Jakub Szamalek went on to state that, in order to appeal to a bigger consumer base, CD Projekt Red has to treat their games similar to how other entertainment companies treat books and movies. Along with the sequel, which will be the last game in the trilogy, the company is also working on "Cyberpunk 2007," another mature-themed role-playing title. You can find the comments made by the writer from the PC Gamer interview below:
We want to create games for really mature players These aren’t games for everyone… We have particular ambitions about what we want to achieve. The games that we make have a complex story you have to work a bit to fully grasp, and I think avoiding bad and good options is also a part of addressing and catering for this large audience, which demands the same treatment they’d get from movies or books.
CD Projekt Red previously stated that "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" will feature nudity and sex. However, the development team will try to handle both elements in a mature way. Most software products, such as the sex mini-games from the "God of War" series, usually offer a somewhat juvenile view towards sexual contents.
The studio also recently confirmed that the sequel won't be coming out in 2014. Instead the release date has been postponed until the second month of next year in order to polish the experience as much as possible. They also wanted the PS4 and Xbox One user bases to grow as they will be able to target more of the aforementioned audience.
"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," which will most likely end up with a "Mature" rating from the ESRB, is going to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in North America. Bandai Namco Games will be handling the distribution duties for European countries with the exception of Poland as CD Projekt Red is self-publishing the title in their home country.
