Yeah this. I mean for the Witcher series and its medieval setting they have experience. The world design is near perfect, the music they use and the language. Even characteristics of people during that time in the world. I dont know if its a smart move to continue with something so different like sci-fi, when you ve gotten this good with a medieval-like setting. There s nothing wrong with being good at a certain genre and setting . Actually its better than making all kinds of random games with different settings.I too am very sad to see this is the last Geralt adventure, but that is mainly because we know the next big CDPR game is going to be Cyberpunk. Something about sci-fi rpgs puts me off and I think they work so well in the sort of medieval esque setting the Witcher has.
Geralt's saga has been going on for 30 years, as of 2016. As Garrison said (Right below you.), long-time fans (Which includes the series' biggest fans: C.D.P.R., themselves.) under-stand why it's time to wrap things up.I'm sorry for the wording but to abandon a franchise at the height of its success (also the very first widely known game)
is one of the most moronic decisions I've ever seen. Why CDPR why? I'll never understand. :cirisad:
I've played both 1 and 2 three times each and I'm on my third playthrough with TW3.I bet cyberpunk will be garbage.
But yeah The Witcher series HAS to end, i dont want another Assassins Creed here, sorry but its your fault for not playing the previous games seriously, you come and play only the last one and then complain that its the last one.
Thing is, it wouldn't even take them that long. I bet they can re-make Witcher 1 in the same time it took them to make Blood & Wine. Depending on how much extra new content they want to add of course. But the original game isn't that big really.I would prefer CD project re-making the trilogy again at some point; with all the skills and knowledge they have gathered along the way.
Grapically uplifting the first two games to the same level as the third one and re-writing the plot and story even better and a bit more coherent throughout the trilogy. Giving for example more meaningful save game import for W1 to W2 and W2 to W3; so the choices you make throughout the trilogy would matter more.
It would make Witcher series more like one long awesome ride like Mass Effect trilogy, rather than three separate stories.
What I don't understand are the conflicting statements coming out of CDPR. Adam Kicinski says, "It's too early to talk about it, but it's not like we're forgetting about this brand – that's understandable ... It wouldn't be fair towards the fans. We work within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don't think it's going to be the end of it." Then Marcin Iwinski later adds that they have no plans for a future installment.A good story should know when to end. You can't expect devs to expand Geralt's story indefinitely, that'd be simply unfair...
If any consolation, think of it as a retirement, rather than 'to die'.
Who knows, perhaps Cyberpunk will prove to be even better.
