The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is “quite complex” according Adam Badowski, managing director of CD Projekt Red. The Wild Hunt features 36 “world-states” that lead to three different and playable epilogues. As you play, the game tracks your choices to the point that each of the 36 endings are broken up into smaller changes that reflect the unique choices of the player.
“We didn’t mean to develop something special for the endings,” said Badowski, “it’s a natural consequence of the storyline. The story has hundreds of different branches and sub-plots. We have to just sum all of those elements up in the epilogues. Some of those elements are taken from the very beginning and some from other moments of the storyline. All of them will connect in the epilogue.”
In total, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt will run around 50 hours, with a multiplayer that CD Projekt has “something” further in store for.
