Polish studio CD Projekt has just published its third-quarter earnings report for 2019, and has cited the release of Witcher 3 on Switch as one of the key reasons for a 38% revenue jump year-on-year.
In the last quarter, CD Projekt Capital Group posted 92.9 million PLN in sales revenues, scoring a net profit of 14.9 million PLN (£2,977,832.05).
Whatever is all I have to say. This has been the statement from the start of VR conception. I have been following VR since the day the DK1 was announced and bought every headset that came out. I have downloaded every game that was supported at the time and have seen the progression of VR first hand. For literally 3 years the Dk2 was sitting on my desk because it was the only HMD available and I would try anything that was posted to oculus web page. I remember they posted a demo of “I expect you to die” that blew me away because motion controllers did not exist as even a concept but the game let you use your mouse as an arm, you could pick up any item than use your scroll wheel to bring it to you or away from you; click to have the item float in mid air; double click to have it drop to the floor. It felt like you could really interact with things.
When the DK1 was released Palmer Lucky whent to a small conference and someone asked him what he thinks the future of VR and HMD’s is going to go. He said eventually all the computing will be on board the HMD with no wires. 7 years later we know have the quest.
Boneworks is coming out in a few weeks. I think we will finally get a taste of what VR 2.0 interactions in a games will be like.
