Rumor: The Witcher 1 for consoles canceled


Recent rumors are suggesting that the console port of CD Projekt’s 2007 hit PC RPG The Witcher has been cancelled. According to a post on the official forums, CD Projekt will comment on this in an official release “soon”.

The rumors began on PolyGamia, which heard from multiple sources that the game is heading for cancellation.

The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf was announced in late 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, to be published by Atari and developed by CD Projekt RED. It is due for a Fall 2009 release as of now, but that may soon change.
