Asked if working on the port gives the Cyberpunk 2077 studio a good foundation for future projects on the platform, senior producer Piotr Chrzanowski told VGC: “From the perspective or understanding the Switch ecosystem and how the hardware works, definitely. That was a huge gain in having this project.
“How that affects our future plans I can’t really say,” he added.
On Monday, publisher Bandai Namco announced a Witcher 3: Wild Hunt release date of October 15, 2019 on Switch.
The Switch port is being developed by Saber Interactive “in close cooperation” with CD Projekt Red.
Elsewhere in our Witcher 3: Wild Hunt interview, Chrzanowski discussed the technical challenges involved in bringing its epic RPG to Nintendo’s console, as well as how development was split between Saber and CD Projekt Red.
“We were split in a way that allowed us to manage production, provide guidance and tap into the knowledge that we had at the studio from the people that actually created The Witcher 3,” he said. “That’s how we organised on our side, but Saber’s role was basically the execution of it.”
