It depends on what you call makes sense. Effort wise it's far from trivial to rewrite the engine in another API. On the other hand running existing game on said console using some other methods (either using another compatible OS or some translation layers) reduces the effort significantly and actually can make sense in such case. Except companies like MS and Sony don't like it, since it reduces their exclusivity control. I.e. they'd rather put a tax on developers requiring them to do more work than to allow more games ported to their platforms with relative ease.A port of at least the second game to the consoles would make sense, it already has a controller friendly user interface, and it is not very dated visually. I guess with the popularity of TW3, there would be enough demand for the prequel on the PS4 to make the port profitable.
The Witcher 2 in its current form is still an extremely competent game. I suggest you play it as soon as you get the chance.while i would prefer an EE for W3, would love to play W1 & 2, maybe made in one single game ? am sure am not the only one who didnt experience them
With the latest news regarding the witcher 3 RedKit, the possibility to recreate the witcher 1 as a witcher 3 mod is none existent until fan made tools will be available.What we have released so far (the modkit), is the only set of tools for W3 that will be available. We have no plans to release anything else. Hope this clears things up.
If some fans want to do it from scratch, why not recreate it using available engines like Unreal instead of waiting forever for CDPR? They clearly don't care now about enabling such things with their own engine. Though I'd assume effort of such recreation is very high either way, so I doubt it will ever happen unless you'll for example fund it through crowdfunding, while CDPR will give a green light to it.With the latest news regarding the witcher 3 RedKit, the possibility to recreate the witcher 1 as a witcher 3 mod is none existent until fan made tools will be available.
The problem with the witcher 2 redkit is that it misses a lot of characters/enemies/models.
