It seems the The Witcher 2 is too full of monsters and mayhem to fit on a single DVD.
The Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 will probably be shipping on a pair of discs. While nothing has been announced officially, speaking at the Eurogamer Expo over the weekend, CD Projekt’s Jan Krzysztof Bielecki basically admitted that the game would ship on multiple discs.
“It’s going to be more than one,” Bielecki said,” and it cannot be three, so … yeah, it’s going to be two discs.” The Xbox 360 version of the game will include all the updates and extra content adding to the game since its launch earlier this year, up to and including the new 2.0 version. It seems unlikely that there will be much disc-swapping involved; even with the extra content, The Witcher 2 is structured in a way that would seem to require only a single disc change at the halfway mark.
As someone who has always thought that The Witcher games would work really well on a console, it’s great to see one finally making the transition. Hopefully, shipping on multiple discs will mean that console players get an experience as close to the PC version as possible, without CD Projekt having to cut any corners.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings comes out for Xbox 360 early next year.
