Publisher and developer CD Projekt Red currently has no plans to make the freshly announced next entry in its The Witcher series exclusive to any one storefront.
The company clarified its stance on storefront exclusivity shortly after its new The Witcher game was announced, when responding to a fan on Twitter.
"We are not planning on making the game exclusive to one storefront," the game's official Twitter account replied to a user expressing their hope that the title's PC version won't be a timed Epic Games Store exclusive.
This worry was partly justified, given how CD Projekt Red also confirmed that the game is being developed using Unreal Engine 5, after it entered a multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games.
No actual details were shared about the new The Witcher game, so it's probably safe to say that we'll have to wait for a longer while before we see it in action.
Things can change as development progresses, but it's certainly great to hear that the publisher plans to let players choose their preferred storefront when it comes to purchasing the upcoming title.
