CD Projekt Red has been very busy with its new installments of The Witcher franchise. Beyond The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt set to come out next year, the studio is also working on a mobile free-to-play MOBA called The Witcher Battle Arena. During our time at Gamescom, Shacknews had a chance to speak to one of the game's developers, Tadek Zielinski, about the game and how it adds to the whole Witcher world.

Zielinski goes into many of the standard MOBA features included in the game, which includes three distinct classes. He also discusses some of the unique mechanics that The Witcher Battle Arena brings to the table, such as the ability to carry two different consumable items into every battle.

To learn more about The Witcher Battle Arena, be sure to check out our interview below. The game is expected to hit iOS in Q4 2014, with Android and Windows Phone versions expected later down the line.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      First, this appears to be a true 'arena' combat game. No lanes with creeps/minions, etc.

      Second, they just said you'll be gimped until you max level to level up your potion and bomb. That'll seriously limit the player base since you'll suck until your max. It's an interesting mechanic, but adding the level up component to maximize it terrible.

      Third, yeah, we really need another moba???
