Marcin Iwinski, one of the founders of CD Projekt Red, has revealed in an interview with MCV India why there isn’t a PS3 version of The Witcher 2.
The game came out on the PC and Xbox 360 and is widely regarded as one of the best RPGs ever made.
“No. We definitely would have loved to, but The Witcher 2 on PC was so big that making it work on Xbox 360 took us a year,” he told the site.
“The Xbox 360 was a more powerful and easier-to-code-on platform than PS3, so that would have taken us another year or year-and-a-half. Would it be so exciting for people to wait so long? And also, this would delay The Witcher 3 because we would have to put most of the team on it. We’d already made some sacrifices in the graphics for the Xbox 360 version.
“If you look at the Xbox 360 version launch time and compare it to the PC specs of that time, the difference is big, but if you were to add a year-and-a-half to that and compare PS3 specs to the PC specs of that time, the difference is huge. It’s mission impossible.”
Some people might disagree with the fact that he called the PS3 a weaker system, but it is definitely easier to code on the Xbox 360 than the PS3.
PlayStation fans will however not miss out on The Witcher 3 which promises to be a spectacular game on the PS4.
