Due to financial dealings amongst various developers, Widescreen Games has announced that the adaptation of the video game “The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf” for Playstation3 and Xbox360 consoles is being frozen. The Witcher: ROTWW was under development in partnership with Atari (publisher) and CDProjekt (creator of the original game on PC).
Having played the PC version of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, I was very impressed with how much detail was put into the game. The game did require a massive amount of hard disk space, video card and memory but it had great cut-scenes and storyline worth anticipating it’s port to the console.
With word from Widescreen Games that The Witcher for consoles in on pause, they are also undertaking other projects and, although they are still confidential, is developing several other games for Playstation3, Xbox360 or Online (via the Identifiction brand).
