The price for The Witness has been confirmed as £29.99/$39.99/€36.99, with pre-orders going live from today on Steam and Humble. There will be no pre-order option on PSN due to that having to be set up quite some time in advance, which Thekla Inc didn’t know. There are no pre-order bonuses on offer though so you’re not missing out on any content should you decide to wait to purchase.
Jonathan Blow started work on The Witness over six years ago, and at the time was pegged to release on multiple platforms in 2011. The Witness got bigger than anticipated though, with the original 8 to 10 hour length becoming a thing of the past. Now The Witness will last around 80 to 100 hours, if you’re going for 100% completion. The Witness was supposed to be part of the PS4 launch line up, but missed that by quite a way as work continued on refining the title. It was only a few months ago that the January 26th release date was confirmed, and now that’s just a week away.
Yesterday a listing on the ESRB board had The Witness rated for Xbox One, though this was later confirmed to be a just in case measure by Jonathan Blow.There are no plans to release yet on Microsoft’s console.
