First pics of the game came from Gamescon, where CDProjekt RED presented prototype of Witcher. It was lighting storm. No teasers, no announcements, nothing. Just bam! We have Witcher game, we were working on it for the past few months. It is almost finished.
Polish game forums were super hot those days. And then silence again – CDProjekt was silent as a grave.
