CD Projekt RED is in discussions with Microsoft to see if it can come up with a way to transfer save files from the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 over to the Xbox One version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

"We need to talk to Microsoft to see if we can make [save transfers] work between 360 and the Xbox One, but it could work," executive producer John Mamais told God Is A Geek. "We're talking to our tech contact and it's kind of an open question right now."

The Witcher series has previously allowed users to import save data from earlier titles to transfer items and money.

Such a thing is "impossible" for the PlayStation 4 version, however, due to previous games skipping release on PS3. To make up for it, though, CD Projekt RED is considering "doing a Q and A type thing like [BioWare] did with Mass Effect".

"We'd like some way to establish a starting point for the character on that console," Mamais continued. "It's important to us, because you need that continuity. People get attached to their character, so we'll do what we can. I promise."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches on PC, Xbox One and PS4 next year.

I imagine the way they might do the save compatibility is to manipulate the saves in the cloud. After all you can save your game saves in the current cloud infrastructure so all it would take is some method of making them compatible there.

A Witcher HD collection (or should that be THD?) of the first 2 games would seem a pretty viable option for some point in the PS4's lifespan.
The Xbox One as well for that matter, since it's not backwards compatible.
Then it would be a question of if the 3rd game could be patched to accept those saves.

Mind you, this is all hypothetical if they haven't even confirmed that Xbox 360 > Xbox One save exports will 100% happen.

I cant help but think if it were that easy and profitable they would have done it already.

Or you could just finally port Witcher 2 to a PS console. With PS4s architechture.. Spend 10 hours on it, make a few tens of millions on it.. You could just do that CDPR...
