So there's still no achievement support? It's the only thing that's keeping me from playing this game...

Doesn't look like it. I fired up GOG today and received a 105MB update, guessing 1.1.10, which was supposed to fix achievements, but I just did a couple and still didn't get them.
That's unfortunate. I guess I'll leave it to collect dust on my hard drive for a while longer.

Come on GOG! Have you really not fixed the achievements for Witcher 2? why do you even release this promise of an achievement system if it doesn't work? This is 1 of 2 huge advantages that steam has over you(The other being more titles, but that will take time to get developers to go DRM - Free)
Not only do the achievements not work for TW2, they don't even work properly half the time for TW3....
Plz fix GOG... Plz?

What do you mean?
Well, given that Witcher 3 is out and they've basically declared that they're done with the Witcher franchise I suppose we just shouldn't expect achievements to ever work in GoG galaxy for this game. We should also expect an endless parade of people coming through asking why for the rest of time.

If they're not going to fix the achievements then they should just remove their presence from the Galaxy client.
cd projekt apparently does not care to fix this :/
Just for anyone who comes across this thread in the future...

See this post for the official the official word on Witcher 2 achievements.

List of games that officially claim to support Galaxy achievements:

Hopefully some day in the future Witcher 2 will gain achievement support for those looking for that though.

The achievements in The Witcher 2 were never actually implemented. Sorry for the horrible confusion this caused :( We removed them until their implementation is finished.

They never claimed that The Witcher franchise is over that I've seen. They did state that the story of Geralt of Rivia has come to an end in the franchise, but they suggested that there were other possibilities to explore in the franchise if they chose to do so in the future. Someone speculated that Ciri would make an interesting protagonist in a future Witcher game although I don't recall if that was someone at CDPR, or the person interviewing them or someone else. With the popularity of the franchise as a whole, in particular of The Witcher 3, I would be surprised if CDPR throws in the towel on the entire franchise however. They're focusing on Cyberpunk 2077 at the moment of course, and the spinoff Gwent game (unless they've subcontracted that out like The Witcher Adventure Game) but they certainly could be dreaming up possible future Witcher titles. There's a lot of different things they could do to expand the franchise in different ways.

- A prequel story of a younger Geralt being taught by Vesimir and becoming a witcher.
- A reboot/remake of The Witcher 1 with modern graphics/engine/controls.
- Spinoff stories at any part of the timeline with one or more of the other well known Witchers as the protagonist (Eskel, Lambert, Vesimir ...)
- A new game based on Ciri placed in time after The Witcher 3, possibly called something else because she's not a witcher herself and I don't think she can become one if I understand the lore. Let's call the speculative game "The Ciri Chronicles". The game is an amazing open world VR game. :)
- They could license the IP to Telltale to do one of their point and click style games.

I'm sure others can come up with a dozen other interesting ideas where they could go in future titles if they wanted to. I know some people would end up being pedantic and want the series to end where it is now and moan about it likely because that's the Internet for ya, but I for one would sign up for any future title of anything along the lines of what I suggested above, or pretty much anything CDPR might come up with. I'd have no reason to doubt them after what they did with Wild Hunt. :)

But... first things first... Cyberpunk 2077... :)

Well... thanks for the info. I hope you guys can finally implement them. :)
Thank you for the clarification Liosan.

I didn't mean done in the sense of they'll never do anything again. But given how long it's been since this game came out, it seems to me that the argument for implementing the achievements properly gets weaker as time goes on (why invest the time when the game's biggest financial impact for CDR is already past). Even if they did make a return to the Witcher series, I think they would be focused on the new game(s), not fixing old ones.
