The Witcher Goes Gold

TheWitcher.jpgAtari and CD Projekt’s much-anticipated action-RPG The Witcher has now gone gold and will begin shipping in North America on October 30th. Alongside Hellgate: London, The Witcher is the top PC game I’m looking forward to this holiday season. It’s been a long time coming, but thankfully the wait is almost at an end…

“Not only does The Witcher shine with its stellar action gameplay, its thought provoking storyline riddled with mature social issues is sure to get gamers talking,” said Larry Liberty, Senior Producer, Atari, Inc. “We’re confident that The Witcher will prove to be one of the most acclaimed RPG titles this Fall.”

“Creating The Witcher was a huge challenge, but also an adventure. Our task was to create a game with an incredibly involving story and a credible world – a role-playing game that we ourselves would like to play,” said Michał Kiciński, CD Projekt Joint CEO. “We approached this task with no compromises. Thanks to that The Witcher is not just another RPG. It’s a piece of work that in many respects changes and extends the typical canon of such games. It’s quite a brave approach, however I believe that thanks to that attitude The Witcher will bring much freshness into the genre and, of course, will give the players all around the world lots of joy and positive emotions. And we couldn’t have asked for a better publishing partner than Atari. We’re very happy that The Witcher will join Atari’s stable of fantastic role-playing games.”
