Currently, the team developing The Witness is working on framerate optimizations, texture streaming, and bonus campaign content. Gameplay in The Witness focuses largely on player exploration, making environmental modeling a key component of the experience.
"We don't know the release date yet," Blow notes. "It's still officially 'when it's done,' but these days 'when it's done' is getting closer and closer. The Witness is an ambitious game with a lot of things for us to get right, and getting it right takes time; I don't want to rush the game out at the cost of quality."
