The Witcher 3 won't feature platform-exclusive content

"It's definitely against our values," studio co-founder says

No content for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be made exclusive to certain platforms, developer CD Projekt Red has assured fans.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer that it's "treating all gamers equally" and it's against the company's values to provide more to one subset than another - even if that means forgoing some extra cash from console manufacturers.

"We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that," Iwinski said. "It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that."

Iwinski neither confirmed nor denied rumors that The Witcher 3 will appear on stage at E3 2014 in June, but he did say that fans will learn more about the game at the trade show.

"What we are doing in terms of marketing cooperation," he added, "you'll see that at E3."

Last week, Iwinski brushed off 1080p and 720p as mainly "a PR differentiation", saying that it made little difference to the majority of console gamers.

The Witcher 3 was originally planned for release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One by the end of 2014, but in March CD Projekt delayed the open-world RPG to February 2015.
