Default [The Witcher] CD Projekt in financial trouble

Quote:
http://gamebanshee.com/news/static/E...lEaevQKOPt.php

GameBanshee has learned from an inside industry contact that The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf has indeed been cancelled.

Details are sketchy, but the following facts have been confirmed: after the release of The Witcher, CD Projekt Red took the financial obligation of starting 3 projects simultaneously, a console port of The Witcher, and two more titles based on The Witcher intellectual property, one of which was The Witcher 2.

As the financial crisis hit, the studio was affected as well, finding itself incapable of managing all three projects and forced to lay off a significant portion of its staff. The third Witcher IP project was cancelled, and its entire crew was let go or left of their own volition. A second round of layoffs followed as The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf was cancelled, including around two dozen people losing their jobs yesterday.

All funds and manpower have been redirected to a single project, The Witcher 2, which will be a multi-platform title for PC and consoles.

Wow, Sucks to hear especially after seeing how nice the game was looking on the console. Lets hope Witcher 2 helps put them in a better position, wont sell well on the consoles I think if the cancellation of White Wolf is true.

Doesn't effect me too much, as I still get Witcher 2 and the original on PC, but it does suck a great company is having problems.

Still, looks like the overextended. They should have licensed White Wolf to another company for the port.

**** consoles they shouldnt worry about that. Let them concentrate on the Witcher 2! I really want to see this game become a reality.

The Witcher is by far my FAVORITE game of all time. Perfect in every way.

No it was good, it would have gotten the series more exposure... It was nothing more then a port of the original game. A console version of the original would have helped Witcher 2 alot more since very few console gamers will buy Witcher 2 since none of the series released on the consoles.
