The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf Announced

By Scott Parrino 02 Dec 2008 0

After much speculation and rumor, along with a couple of well-timed leaks, news of a highly anticipated remake of The Witcher for consoles has just been confirmed.  The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf now has a video trailer, wallpaper, and best of all, confirmation that it's on the way on the official website.

Along with its release is confirmation that the title will be released for consoles.  Both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 will see some RPG action this time.  In a statement Adam Kicinski, CEO of The Witcher's developoment house, CD Projekt Red, said, ?Console gamers don?t want to be treated like kids; they?re ready for deep story-driven games, and we think we?re delivering one of the deepest console RPGs ever with The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf." He went on to add, "The only thing we?re taking directly from The Witcher is the story; everything else is being created from scratch or significantly reworked to get us to our end goal of delivering the ultimate console RPG.?

That appears to be very true, as Geralt has picked up some flashy Kung Fu moves in addition to his magic and swordplay.

?We?re not about to dumb down our games for anyone,? added Michal Kicinski, co-founder of CD Projekt. ?We want to give players the best games, regardless of platform; it?s important to us that each game plays to the platform?s strengths while treating our players with respect. That was our development philosophy with The Witcher, it?s our philosophy with Rise of the White Wolf, and it?s our philosophy on the other two games in development at CD Projekt RED. Anyone concerned that we?re going to somehow offer a shallow RPG simply because we?re working on consoles can stop worrying.?
