The Witcher 2 will span 2 discs on Xbox360
Story designer and writer for CD Projekt RED Jan Bartkowicz has confirmed during the Eurogamer Expo that The Witcher 2 on Xbox360 will ship on two discs. He also stated that there will be more content included in the xbox version with story content expanded to offer closure to some storylines in the game. The adaptation has also been designed with the xbox controller in mind, and Bartkowicz further hinted that there may be something graphical included to fill players in on the events of the original Witcher game.
An excerpt from his Eurogamer interview:
“We’re really focusing on expanding the story a little bit and not – I don’t know how to talk about it without revealing anything I can’t. We are going to have some additional events that are going to happen in the game. Majority of this is some stuff that will make the story bigger, show some back story, show some additional events – and now you can understand some things that were still open at the beginning of Witcher 2, but are right now closed.”
The story content will apparently be “bigger than all the DLCs we’ve released so far”, and may focus on Yennefer: “We haven’t forgotten about her and she’s a very important part of the whole story. And that’s all I can say – I can’t say anything about future releases.”
“I believe it’s going to be like no other game on Xbox . And, of course, there’s a lot of marketing stuff you can say, and a lot stuff that marketing guys want people to say is probably bullshit. But I can say with my hands on my heart that there’s no such non-linear and mature, complex story on Xbox.”
