Speaking at the Eurogamer Expo over the weekend, CD Projekt Red's Jan Krzysztof Bielecki admitted that the impending Xbox 360 version of RPG masterpiece The Witcher 2 will most likely be coming on two discs.
"It's going to be more than one," he told Beefjack. "And it cannot be three, so, yeah, it's going to be two discs."
The Witcher 2's narrative is structured in such a manner that a disc swap partway through the story will not be intrusive -- each chapter is set in a self-contained area to which players cannot return once it has been completed. As such, it hopefully will be simple enough for the game data to be spread across two discs in such a way as to minimize swaps.
