Witcher 2 was ‘never confirmed’ for consoles

Despite the fact that everybody was pretty sure about seeing Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, CD Projekt is now adamant that a console version was never a sure bet, stating that it’s only a “potential” release, and even if it happens, it won’t be coming any time soon. 

“We never did confirm a console release of [The Witcher 2],” says studio boss Tom Ohle. “The situation is still that we do want to bring the Witcher franchise to console gamers at some point, and we’ve buit an engine capable of console development… but have made no formal announcements of plans for a console release.”

Given the failure of past efforts to bring a Witcher game to consoles, I think CD Projekt should just give up on the idea. Whatever God you believe in clearly doesn’t want a Witcher game anywhere near a home console.
