Rumor: The Witcher Coming to the Xbox 360
The Witcher is an RPG game for the PC that's received a lot of good press, but seems to have trouble finding an audience in the States (overseas I hear the game is doing gangbusters). Perhaps it's the game esoteric title, or that it's a PC-only title, or that near-bankrupt Atari is marketing the game. Whatever the reason this game hasn't received the sales that it deserves.
Well good news as it appears that CD Projekt, the makers of the game, now has a job opening for console programmers on its website. More specifically, the company is looking for programmers and producers familiar with the Xbox 360 hardware.
Of course this could mean anything, its only a single job posting, but porting a PC game to the Xbox 360 is a relatively straightforward procedure, especially for those with experience in this type of work. Of yeah, and this job posting was make directly on The Witcher website. All signs point to an Xbox 360 release of The Witcher sometime in future which would add another great RPG to ever expanding library of great Xbox 360 RPGs.
And for those of you who want to see what all the fuss is about make sure to download the newly released demo of the game. You can play the Prologue and the entire Act 1 and experience all the monster hunting, fisting fighting, gambling, and carousing that you can take!
