The Witcher 2 is Coming to OnLive Soon

Two questions that the OnLive community seems to ask very frequently are, “When is The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings going to come to OnLive?” and “Will The Witcher 1 ever get gamepad support?”

OnLiveFans had a chance to briefly ask Michal Nowakowski, VP of Business Development at CD Projekt RED these two questions.

When they inquired about possibly having OnLive controller support for The Witcher 1, Nowakowski told them, “There are no current plans to make such support for [Witcher 1]. That may change in the future as we put to bed our X360 release.”

So for those that have hopes of seeing the OnLive gamepad supported in the first game, it doesn’t look very promising, at least in the immediate future. However, there is some good news. To say that the OnLive community has been awaiting the release of The Witcher 2 for a very long time, would be an understatement. It’s probably the single most anticipated game on the service, and it has been faced with some lengthy delays.

They asked Nowakowski if he knew when The Witcher 2 would be coming to the cloud gaming service.

“I know this is about to happen soon but I do not know the exact date yet,” explained Nowakowski. “OnLive is working on some final issues they encountered and I know they are VERY close to sorting them out. They could not pin the date on that exactly.”

Nowakowski informed them that this is the very latest that he has heard from OnLive, and he received this information just several hours prior to their article being written. It seems as though OnLive is just working on a few finishing touches, and we could see this game released in the very near future.

One last question that they asked Nowakowski was if CD Projekt RED was planning to release any other games to OnLive in the future.

“The answer is yes – I assume that provided OnLive is going to grow out there as a digital platform, we would be adding more of our coming titles (that are actually not announced yet) to the platform,” said Nowakowski.

Unannounced CD Projekt Red titles potentially coming to OnLive? This should be enough to make any OnLive fan feel as though they are on top of the world.
