Witcher 3 Developer Responds To Modkit Controversy

Earlier this week The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt received official modding support in the form of a “Modkit”. This Modkit was created for people with modding experience. It is a basic toolsuite that allows players to modify the game in many ways, and is designed to make creating mods easier and faster. However some fans are saying that this is too difficult to use, and that it isn’t enough.

It appears that when CD Projekt Red announced that they were releasing the Modkit, fans assumed that it would be a newer version of their previous “REDkit”, a more fleshed out package that is currently only available for The Witcher 2: assassins of Kings.

This is a completely understandable assumption as in January 2014, the CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski said that they were “looking to release the REDkit sometime after [The Witcher 3] launches for the modding community.”

Due to this, the community manager of CD Projekt Red, Marcin Momot has spoken out on Twitter, saying that the developer has no plans for releasing a new version of the REDkit for The Witcher 3.

Fans have reached out to voice their discontent over the current Modkit. One fan asked, “Any ETA for a Full Featured TW3 REDkit? Maybe after the AddOn’s? Or is this (no offence) everything we get?” Momot replied: “This is the mod support for the Wild Hunt. At the moment, we are not planning to release anything else”.

We will continue to follow this story and report any new information that we find.
