Rumors: the authors of The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 are working on a game for Nintendo Switch
It seems that Polish Studio CD Projekt RED is working on Cyberpunk 2077 only and (possibly) another mysterious, big-budget game that is also going to release until 2021. In December, the website of a major French retail chain WTT a version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Nintendo Switch (later the page was removed), and recently players noticed for the position of lead programmer Department software development platform GOG Galaxy, which along with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam,
Ads found YouTube user Doctre81, which was dedicated to rumors about the game, CD Projekt RED for Nintendo separate video Switch. Many decided that the information may be inaccurate, as the author has not made reference to any one source, limiting screen shots. But, as he himself explained, he did so only in order to avoid problems with the company and lock video. However, the information still should be taken with a pinch of salt.
First, the blogger recalled the appearance of the page The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the hybrid platform on the website named above French supplier. Second, shared screenshot ads head of software development Department of the GOG Galaxy on the Polish website CD Projekt. Vacancy is really published, but no mention Nintendo Switch in it, while the rest of the announcement coincides with the presented in the picture. Perhaps the developers changed it after the December leaks, but do not rule out that the video shows the fruit of the labor in the graphical editor.
The candidate will lead a team consisting of more than twenty people that will be working on cross-platform compatibility games. He is to “inspire and motivate” employees, “to keep up with trends, learning new tools and improving existing solutions”, and to share knowledge with the team. It is required not less than seven years of experience as a C++ programmer, experience in project management and working in a “lively environment”, organization skills and communication. The Studio wants to find a technician already working on some positions in the gaming industry, preferably on the online multiplayer projects (!).
Doubt whether such a large and demanding game like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, work on Nintendo Switch. However, this console has already moved II Wolfenstein: The New Colossus and DOOM, and the result is pretty good. It is also worth considering that the rumors about the release of other games on the Nintendo platform, which arose with the filing of the retailers, was confirmed. This also applies to the recently announced remaster of Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation.
However, it may be that the poles work on another game for Nintendo Switch. For example, it could be moved Gwent: The Witcher Card Game or Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.
Meanwhile, CD Projekt RED recently confirmed that the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 will not be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. On a role-playing game now employs about 400 people. She’s still not even an approximate release date, but we know that it will appear on the platforms of the current generation.
