Despite the fact that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings senior producer Tomasz Gop isn't with CD Projekt RED anymore, we managed to catch up with him before his departure for a quick post-release interview about the game's reception, sales figures, DRM-free nature, future modding support, and more. The interview was actually conducted before the Xbox 360 version was announced, in case you're wondering why none of our questions deal with the console port:
GB: We know that well over 100,000 copies of the game were pre-ordered, but what sort of sales numbers are you seeing since the game's release? Are the numbers meeting your expectations? How does the sequel's sell-through rate compare to the original game's?
Tomasz: We're glad to tell you that the final pre-order total was over 150,000 units, which is one of the highest numbers in recent memory for a PC-only game. The sell-through figures so far have been very satisfactory.
GB: Beyond the Troll Trouble DLC, what other downloadable content are you working on for the game? How many add-ons do you intend to release for it, and have you decided whether or not you'll pursue a full-on expansion pack?
Tomasz: As you might expect, since we plan to release our DLCs over time, our basic plan is to announce them individually. What we can say right now is that we have a couple more coming within the next few weeks, and also that we will have more after that. And they will all be DLC 4 Free, meaning no charge to registered users.
