Last nights PS4 announcements were full of exciting surprises, and more good news for RPG fans has arrived today. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the next installment in the epic series will be released for the Playstation 4 sometime in 2014 according to developer CD Projekt RED.
“It’s a real pleasure to cooperate with Sony. Combining CD Projekt RED’s unique artistic vision and tech with the capabilities of PlayStation 4 will make The Witcher 3 a truly next-gen RPG. With Sony’s new hardware and our new engine, there are no limits to what we can create in the process of realizing our vision for Geralt’s dark fantasy world,” commented Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt SA.
The game will utilize the REDengine 3 to provide some impressive visuals, which should make the game more engrossing than ever. “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” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio.
If you haven’t had a chance to play the other The Witcher games and you are worried that you won’t know what the hell is going on, don’t fret – the story will serve as a standalone expansion to the series so you should be good.
