No one can really answer this yet as the game is not out yet.
But I made a separate thread from The Witcher 3 to focus between these two great RPG's.
If any of you have played The Witcher 2, you know that gameplay wise and story wise, it is a masterpiece, with high replay value.
But let's talk, what do you think distinguishes them most (from what we've heard so far about The Witcher 3), feel free to take up The Witcher 2 on what distinguishes it with Skyrim and what is more the same?
One thing, the open world will now be found in The Witcher 3, no longer only The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, that's pretty good.
So what do you think? Will The Witcher 3 dethrone Skyrim?
