US President Barack Obama Praises CD Projekt RED's "The Witcher" Game During Trip to Poland

US President Barack Obama Praises CD Projekt RED's "The Witcher" Game During Trip to Poland | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

In 2011, Poland's prime minister Donald Tusk gave United States president Barack Obama a copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The US Commander-in-chief has not forgotten that gesture, specifically mentioning The Witcher series this week during an appearance in Poland. Obama said the acclaimed role-playing video game series developed in the country by CD Projekt Red is a "great example" of how Poland contributes to the global economy.

 

"The last time I was here, Donald (Polish prime minister) gave me a gift, the video game developed here in Poland that's won fans the world over, The Witcher," Obama said during the event, as translated by CD Projekt Red's PR agency. "I confess, I'm not very good at video games, but I've been told that it is a great example of Poland's place in the new global economy. And it's a tribute to the talents and work ethic of the Polish people as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders like prime minister Tusk."

 

On June 5, CD Projekt Red will hold its annual Summer Conference. During this event, the developer is expected to release a new trailer with in-game footage for 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
