The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf Finally Hitting Shelves?Category: Gaming

Over three years ago, I reported that The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf (RotWW), was put on hold. If some recent retail listings are accurate, it seems the day of its release may finally be approaching. RotWW is the console port of the original The Witcher RPG, which had been a PC-exclusive up until this point. Due to financial issues, CD Projekt put its development on indefinite hold to focus on other things, most notably the sequel. Although nothing official has been announced, due to The Witcher 2's success, despite the apparent rampant piracy on the PC, it seems the company may have finally found the money to finish RotWW's development and bring it to market. Of course the real question is whether Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners still want to play the original nearly five years after its initial PC release (nearly four years after the Enhanced Edition hit the market). Regardless, it's nice to see the company hadn't forgotten about this project, despite working on two other big projects.
