The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, forthcoming open world role-playing game from CD Projekt Red, will not feature any platform-exclusive content.
"We are treating all gamers equally," Marcin Iwinski, co-founder of the studio, told Eurogamer. "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. It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that."
Extra content that is only available on a particular console is becoming increasingly common with major cross-platform releases despite players generally being critical of such moves, as console manufacturers vie for the the lion's share of sales.
Add-ons for the Call of Duty series have been timed Xbox exclusives for a number of iterations now, and the PlayStation and Xbox versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes each had an exclusive mission when the game launched, though those were recently made available to all. In March, Ubisoft revealed that PlayStation versions of open world action-adventure game Watch_Dogs would include four extra missions amounting to an hour of playtime, among other perks.
Last week, Iwinski spoke up about the ongoing debate about resolution differences between console, saying it was little more than a "PR differentiation."
The Witcher 3 is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and is planned for release in February 2015.
