Witcher 3 Dev Talks About How It Will Handle DLC

CD Projekt, developer of the Witcher series, made its Witcher 2 DLC free of charge. After a recent interview with Examiner, it looks like we might see the same deal for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

"We could sell extra content to gamers down the road, but we don't believe in that," said game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz. "Only something really big, and something that will not make you feel ripped off, justifies a price tag." 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release in 2014 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Click the banner below to see all of our exclusive Witcher 3 content.

(Editor's note - April 7 2015: The remainder of the quote featured on the Examiner clearly states that CD Projekt reserves the right to charge for some content. "If we ever decide to charge you for something," Tomaszkiewicz says, "we think you will appreciate what you get in return.")

Our Take
While this is clearly good news for the consumer, we're left to wonder exactly what Tomaszkiewicz means by "something really big." We've certainly seen huge add-ons this generation like Oblivion's Shivering Isles DLC, but most tends to be smaller in size and scope.
