The Witcher series is known for being rather open to sexual content. Fans of the series must remember how Geralt could have his way with Triss, Ves, Succubus, Mottle as well as multiple prostitutes. So what’s stopping CD Projekt RED from continuing with it in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Actually nothing.
Michal Platkow-Gilewski from the developing studio was interviewed recently when he was asked whether we could expect them to follow the tradition in the upcoming game, his response was:
“There will be nudity, yes. But how we approach that: we create what we think is real, as far as fantasy games can be real. So if there is a possibility in the story to have romance, it makes no sense to skip it because there may be nudity in that, so we’re just not afraid of that. But on the other hand, we know that we can just overdose with this, because it’s not a game about sex, it’s just like real-life.”
So yes, that means there still will be plenty even if the developer feels like draping them in the veil of sensibility.
Moreover, we do know that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be the end of Geralt’s story but is it the end of the series? CD Projekt Red says yes. They confirmed that the series will end with this game and that it will have a clear cut ending. No cliffhangers.
Yes, this will be the final installment of the series. We decided that one of the key elements of a good story is for the story to have a clear cut ending. No cliffhangers, no milking the community for yet-another-game-in-the-franchise. A beginning, a middle and an end, that’s our vision of how proper storytelling should look like.”
How many of you would be sad that the series will end after The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Wouldn’t you want another installment after this?
