The next-gen RPG will appear on the next-gen console from Sony, as well as on PC
After yesterday's reveal of the PlayStation 4, CD Projekt Red, the developer of the upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt RPG, has confirmed that it's going to release the new title onto the next-generation Sony console, as well as on the PC and "all high end platforms available."The Witcher 3 was revealed to the world earlier this month and developer CD Projekt Red shared quite a lot of details about its next-generation role-playing game, which is powered by an all-new RedEngine 3 technology.
At that time, the studio mentioned that The Witcher 3 would come out in 2014 for the PC and "all high-end platforms available."
Now, seeing as how at least one high-end console has been revealed, in the form of the PlayStation 4, CD Projekt Red has confirmed via an official statement that The Witcher 3 will appear on the new console, a first for the series that has only appeared on the PC and once on the Xbox 360.
"We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4. It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4's lifecycle," the studio's Adam Badowski said.
According to him, it's much easier for the studio to now talk about The Witcher 3, seeing as how one more platform is known.
"The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house RedEngine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we're looking forward to using in our game," he added.
You can expect to hear much more about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt after Microsoft officially reveals its own Xbox 720 next-gen console.
