Elsewhere during the presentation, CD Projekt Red announced that its REDKit modding toolset in which players can create their own environments, make movies, or add new non-linear adventures will be coming during the first half of next year as a free update to The Witcher 2. It's currently in a closed beta.

Finally, the developer revealed that its upcoming RPG Cyberpunk now bears the subtitle 2077, noting the year it takes place. Other details include that it will be a sandbox game transpiring in Night City.

Original Story: I can reveal that The Witcher 2 will launch on Mac today on both Steam and Good Old Games (GOG).

On Good Old Games? Yes, it will offer Mac support from today.

The news comes from a concrete source and arrives roughly two hours before CD Projekt's autumn conference kicks off.

The streamed conference will demonstrate Witcher 2 modding tool REDkit and reveal a ballpark release date for it.

Then the conference will move onto CD Projekt Red's exciting new next generation game Cyberpunk, which a second non-Witcher team is building.

Cyberpunk is a working title and it's proper name will be revealed this evening. Special guest, RPG veteran Mike Pondsmith, will reveal a few facts about the game mechanics.

Return of the Mac.
