CD Projekt RED have been speaking about the next tale in their much-loved RPG series, one which fans will have to play multiple times to get the whole story.
In an interview with Polygon at GDC, the developer’s managing director Adam Badowski said that the game will take note of all of your morality choices throughout The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and give you one of three epilogues, which will also take into consideration one of thirty-six world states. Badowski said:
“The game is quite complex. We didn’t mean to develop something special for the endings, it’s a natural consequence of the story line. The story has hundreds of different branches and sub plots. We have to just sum all of those elements up in the epilogues. Some of those elements are taken from the very beginning and some from other moments of the storyline. All of them will connect in the epilogue. We have a lot of things to summarize. We didn’t spend time on inventing endings, it was just the consequence of those choices.”
Badowski also insinuated that players who have an existing save from The Witcher 2 may be able to use that on PlayStation 4, somehow. Obviously, none of the previous games in the series were on Sony hardware and Badowski remained tight-lipped on how saves will carry over. It’s safe to assume that there would be some crossover between PC and PS4 in this instance, but how that will happen, remains to be seen.
The Witcher 3: Wild hunt will be released in 2014 for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and other next generation console(s)
