CD Projekt RED Co-Founder Wants Free DLC to Become the Standard
Cernescu Andrei / 3 years ago
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an amazing game all-around and it definitely managed to deliver on its hype, unlike many other titles. However, even though the game was definitely playable at launch and offered a plethora of content, its creators over at CD Projekt RED worked tirelessly over the following months in order to create patches and free DLC packs that added even more quests, armour sets, Gwent cards and even a New Game+ mode. The 16th and last free DLC for The Witcher 3 has just become available, and the co-founder of CD Projekt RED, Marcin Iwiński, encouraged other companies to follow the example and release free DLC packs for their games in the future.
“We’ve been releasing free DLCs since launch, and today’s release of New Game +, the 16th and last of them, marks a special moment for us and, I hope, for all Wild Hunt fans as well. I’d like to extend my thanks to all the gamers who played our game and gave these DLCs a try. Nothing makes a developer happier than seeing gamers have fun with what they created. I would really like to see such initiatives become an industry standard rather than an exception to the general rule, and I hope that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has set a good example.”
It won’t be long now before the studio will release the first of the game’s premium DLC, which is expected to add quite a few more hours of playable content.
