The Witcher 3 Developer Doesn’t Believe In Paid DLC

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will apparently be supported with new content for two years after its release according to developer CD Projekt Red but you can guarantee that it probably won’t be paid DLC, as the studio doesn’t believe in it. CD Projekt Red game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz was asked in an interview with Examiner about what he thinks of paid DLC and whether The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would actually be receiving any as most games today seem to get some form of paid DLC.

Most DLC for this game will probably be free which is good news for gamers 

Tomaszkiewicz didn’t rule out paid content entirely but stressed that any content that you had to pay for would be worth the money:

“We could sell extra content to gamers down the road, but we don’t believe in that. We believe patches, fixes and additional content should be provided to gamers free of charge. Only something really big, and something that will not make you feel ripped off, justifies a price tag.”

“If we ever decide to charge you for something, we think you will appreciate what you get in return.”

It is quite refreshing to see a developer not wanting to charge the earth for every little bit of DLC, no matter how insignificant or significant it actually is to the game itself. At least you know if the charge you for some DLC then it will be probably be worth it, content wise. The Witcher 3 will release on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC sometime in 2014.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
