Getting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to work on Nintendo Switch was a major undertaking. Saber Interactive helped CD Projekt Red in the process of creating the Nintendo Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Speaking with GamesBeat, the executive director, Matthew Karch said:
When the initial port was made, the game originally ran at 10 frames per second, was consuming 50% more memory than Switch and the build size was 20 GB larger than the larger Switch cartridge. Saber removed the dynamic shadows, removed environmental occlusion on the screen and reduced the number of NPCs in the world by 30% to get it.
Saber Interactive Incorporated is an American video game developer based in Maplewood, New Jersey, founded in 2001. The company has regional offices in Saint Petersburg, Madrid, Minsk, and Sundsvall. Saber Interactive employs 450 people as of December 2018.
