#1 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

 Just got this e-mail. CD Project will host a live stream from their CDP Summer Conference in L.A tomorrow. 
 

 
Here's that link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cdp-summer-days 
 
 
I'm excited to hear what they have planned for the future.

I hope it's another patch.

#3 Posted by Animasta (14667 posts) -

Expansion and DLC news, I'm really hoping.

#4 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

The "secret" will also be revealed on GOG.

Yes me too.

I was under the impression that the announcement was about GOG.com's new publisher. 
If CD Projekt are announcing something too, I'd imagine it'll be about the 360 port and possibly upcoming DLC.

They've already said on the site the 1.2 patch is coming, they still need to fix registration issues and a couple of other things. I doubt there will be any improvements to performance. 
 
I want bulky expansion DLC.

@Contro: I want to play the game. (I can't since I have a G35 headset)

I'm also pretty sure it was about GOG. If they are announcing a 360 version, wouldn't they keep that for e3?

Its Witcher 2 on consoles. Come on, its pretty obvious.

yeah, this and probably an expansion.

Doesn't seem like a console port or DLC/expansion:
 

CD Projekt RED will also be making a big announcement about their next upcoming title

Also, can't wait to see GOG's next publisher, I'm hoping for EA :o

They're going to pay for my PC upgrade so i can get to play the game earlier

Red Engine toolset, you heard it here first :)

In addition to mentioning their big announcement, they also say this in the statement above: 


"CDP Red will discuss some of the successes of the recent launch of The Witcher 2, and will also map out a plan for continued support for the new title." 


 
That reads as DLC / Expansion to me.

Perhaps.  Especially if it's not coming to the PS3, might be something Microsoft will bring out to announce.

Really hope that either this or the E3 announcement involves the game coming to the 360. Will be a day one purchase for me.

#17 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

It makes more sense to announce any console product at E3.

#18 Posted by salad10203 (654 posts) -

Expansion please, for the love of god what happens after the ending?

#19 Posted by ch3burashka (5036 posts) -

It's "The Witcher 3", coming June 3rd.

it's pretty obvious Geralt is heading north to the Nilfgaardian Empire to find Yennefer.

This. Also, I wan't to see all the decisions carry over to the 3rd game. So many possibilities!
#22 Posted by Binman88 (3685 posts) -

I hope it's a proper, big expansion, and I hope it's getting released soon. I don't see any need for DLC items or anything small like that, because frankly there's enough loot in the game as it is. If it is an expansion of some sort, I don't see how they can do anything other than a continuation from the story's end. The closed off nature of the game's progression doesn't lend itself to additional side quests, so unless they're doing some proper prologue stuff, I have to imagine that if there is an expansion coming, it's been in the plans since early development and will see you continuing the story from where you left off. I'd be delighted if they began releasing episodic instalments, roughly a chapter's length each every month or two, rather than making us wait until the Witcher 3 in a number of years time, but I think that might be a bit pie in the sky.

Hopefully it's both an expansion and a console version.
I want the console only people to experience the game as well =)
Share the love!

They're announcing how awesome Witcher 2 is in a 360.

unfortunately this sounds pretty much right... though I think they will have something horrible happen to him. Nothing ever goes smooth in the world of the witcher.

CD Projekt RED announces that it has begun collaborating with Plastige Image Studio on a new project. The first result of this cooperation is a trailer directed by Oscar-nominated Tomasz Bagiński. It will be unveiled on Thursday, June 2nd during the CD Projekt Summer Conference preceding the E3 trade show in Los Angeles, CA.

“Working with Platige Image on the first Witcher game left us with a great impression. They are truly amazing; their work is clearly world-class. We are certain their video material will spice up our newest production. While a high-quality rendered movie takes a lot of work to produce and is short compared to the total gameplay time, it is very impressive, and thus adds considerably to the overall mood of the game,” said Adam Badowski, The Witcher 2 Game Director.

Tomasz Bagiński and his Platige Image group were behind cinematics for the first Witcher, which were nominated for Visual Effect Society Award. 

“I am really happy to team up with CD Projekt RED again and to return to the great Witcher family. Both our companies have developed a lot over the past few years. Although our studio has worked on many interesting and major projects, I remember our participation on the first Witcher very fondly. When the opportunity arose to collaborate again, I didn’t have to think twice. The trailer we have prepared for E3 is the first fruit of our renewed cooperation,” - Said Tomasz Bagiński, Trailer Director.

I can't wait to see it.

Also looking forward to an expansion or them carrying on the story with the free DLC they have planned for the game.

As GOG 's got a gigantic countdown clock (3 hrs to go) on their site, it probably precludes any console port announcement (which is a shame, as I'd love to play The Witcher, but my laptop can barely handle most web flash applications, I doubt'd it could even handle the installer for either Witcher 1 or 2.) 
  
Attempting to use Google's translator on most of the Polish pages confirms  @Scooper's post. I wonder if they're going to do short web featurettes, like the MK web shorts?

#30 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7614 posts) -

Seems a few Polish retailers have jumped the gun and confirmed the Witcher 2 for the 360 on November 15th. 
No word on the PS3..  We'll see if they have anything else to announce at this conference, it does seem they're throwing around the term "new IP" a lot.

This is about to start y'all.

#32 Posted by Animasta (14667 posts) -

it's on!
 
he totally looks like a fish out of water :P

#33 Posted by BeachThunder (11799 posts) -

:o EA

#34 Edited by Binman88 (3685 posts) -

I hope there's something Witcher 2 related, that isn't just the 360 announcement :( 
 
Edit: Bah, nothing more specific than a confirmation of upcoming DLC. That's something I guess, but doesn't sound like any kind of meaningful expansion... guess we'll have to wait til the Witcher 3 comes out to continue the story.
