Contrary to what many think, video game companies do not talk massive amount of shit about one another or get into to into massive brawls like a scene from Fight Club. BioWare writer Patrick Weekes talked at a PAX Australia panel and was asked about how he feels about his competition The Witcher 3 and developers CD Projekt Red. He simply replied that he hopes gamers buy games from both companies.
“I think ‘compete’ is the wrong word. I think there’s a story that people want to tell, where the video game companies hate each other and ‘our game is going to crush theirs.’ And that’s really not true,” Weekes said. “I came to BioWare because I love games. And I hope that the next Witcher game is fantastic and I hope that ours is fantastic, and I hope that people buy both and play both.”
“Every time another great game comes out, and raises the bar, that’s not threatening; it’s only threatening if we don’t think we can ever do anything better,” he added. “So we look at something and go, ‘That’s a fantastic game. How am I going to incorporate that awesome thing and do it in a BioWare fashion?’”
