The Witcher 3 – 1 year to port

The Witcher 3 – 1 year to port

A Digital Foundry interview with CD Projekt has revealed how long it took to port The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition to Nintendo Switch.

Chrzanowski, who worked on the port, said it took one year to bring the game to Nintendo Switch, or slightly over a year if “business stuff” was included in the mix.

Piotr Chrzanowski: “Over a year now. Well it depends on whether you want to add the business stuff, but then I would say it’s around 12 months at this point.”

It’s an incredible feat to have the game up and running in just one year, given the challenges the studio faced to get The Witcher 3 running on a lower-specs platform.
