The lights are on
Some fans might be worried about The Witcher 3's leap to an open world, that the tightly-constructed narrative of previous entries might be sacrificed to appease a growing trend in the industry. Rest assured, the development team at CD Projekt RED is confident that they have created the perfect fusion of exploration and narrative.
Watch the video interview to hear the game's director and lead quest designer talk about converting the world of The Witcher and what lessons they have learned from games like Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas, and Assassin's Creed 3.

Damn, they really are trying to get the perfect open world game here. Really scrutinizing other open world games and taking the bad stuff out and putting the good stuff in. Really looking forward to this.
Even though I have to admit that (in spite of trying several times) I could never bring myself to even remotely finish one of the Witcher games so far (I just don't fancy low-fantasy that much), EVERY word of this interview is *absolutely* true. That alone deserves respect. If they can follow up those statements with deeds and games, then I'll have to take a look at The Witcher 3 after all.
Ambitious ambitions. Don't know if they can get all they want in but looking forward to see if they can.
Can't wait for this
Great that they are going back into open areas.
I'm loving the continued coverage of this game. The more I hear, the more excited I get.
Elder Scrolls is less about the characters you interact with and more about the character you create. I think games where you create your own custom character or a little more fun. You get to decide kind of person your character is.
