The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf

Well, it looks like that dastardly swine flu isn’t the only thing spreading like crazy these days. Rumors that the upcoming console version of CD Projekt’s acclaimed PC RPG The Witcher, The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, has been canceled have already hit several major gaming outlets, including this one, and there appears to be no end in sight. Kotaku reported that the source of the rumor was a post on the Polish site Polygamia. From there, the rumor traveled to the Witcher’s official forum, where a PR rep for CD Projekt simply said, “We will comment on this in official release soon.”

GameBanshee picked up on the story, and got to the bottom of it, citing an “industry contact” who “confirmed” that the financial strain of three simultaneous Witcher-related projects was too much for CD Projekt to bear, and the axe had to fall somewhere. And if that wasn’t depressing enough, the source said the entire Rise of the White Wolf team was let go as well.

Now, none of this has been officially confirmed, so for now, all you can really do is keep hope alive by visiting the Rise of the White Wolf teaser site and checking out what “might have been.”

Thought: Does this mean CD Projekt will be able to throw more resources at the Witcher 2 team, who are developing the game for multiple platforms? If so, could this “cancelation” actually be a good thing?
