It seems GOG support got it completely wrong on The Witcher 3 for Linux. A different person inside GOG has said they have no idea why a previous staff member said TW3 was never planned.


Maybe it will one day, maybe it won't. We again are back to officially not knowing what's going on at all.

Until there's something more solid in future, this is likely the last time I will be writing about The Witcher 3. Article taken from

You get what you pay for. I think they need a word with their PR team.

I did think it was a little bit odd that support at GOG should be this well informed of such plans (or lack thereof). Even if they are owned by the studio, anyone who's worked for an employer this large (they are close to 400 employees as far as I understand) everyone does not know about everything that goes on.

They are not even located in the same country: GOG offices are located in Cyprus, while CD Projekt is in Poland.

Yeah, I would never ask confirmation or even take confirmation from support for such things. Regarding small features, prices, etc. yes, but they aren't that well informed about any future plans.

W3 still might not be happening on Linux, but I will guess it is not that simple 'yes' or 'no' answer at this point, which makes sense.
Maybe it's just simple as this previous member of staff having some type of Linux antipathy? Seems like a straight out emotional response now. "no plans of releasing The Witcher 3 on Linux and there never were any"...

To make us once again feel like, well, you know, something about classes and seconds :o

You blurred the guy's email but you didn't blur his name at the end of the email.

Maybe thanks to this we will have a final status.

A VP port would be fine for me. TW2 port sucks, but newer ones work pretty well (even though Feral and Aspyr ports work much better)
