We recently spoke with José Teixeira, senior technical artist at CD Projekt Red. In our interview we talked about the RPG development process and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's upcoming expansion, Blood & Wine.

We also briefly talked about the "rivalry" between CD Projekt Red and Bethesda, creators of Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

"There were a lot of 'colds' in the studio during the launch week for Fallout 4... I wonder why! Bethesda makes absolutely great games, no doubt about that, and everything they do serves as inspiration for us, although we hope that the opposite is also true," Teixeira told us.

"Here in the studio we are all major gamers, and although each one has their preferences, almost everyone loves RPGs. I think this rivalry between the two studios ultimately benefits both the players, and the studios themselves, forcing us to always do better."

You can expect to read the full interview with José Teixeira's this weekend.
