The Witcher 3 Dev Responds to Report of the Game Failing to Reach 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One

By   /   Aug 21, 2014

CD Projekt Red has responded to an earlier report which stated that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may not run in 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Jose Teixeira, the visual effects artist on The Witcher 3, commented earlier that the title is struggling to achieve the 1080p mark on both the consoles. The news sent waves of disappointment amongst the console users, who were pretty certain that the Polish developer would achieve the glorious HD threshold.

“As said, we are working hard on optimizing the game and nothing is set in stone,” CD Projekt Red marketing manager Tomasz Tinc told GameSpot. “Our engine team remains optimistic and we will surely squeeze the most we can out of each console. I know you might be expecting concrete info like the final frame rate and resolution, but it’s simply impossible to give you that sort of thing before the optimization process is complete.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for release next year on February 24 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Since the game’s release is far away, it’s also not the right time to announce a final resolution. There’s also ample time for the studio to work their way around whatever limitations they are facing on the new consoles and optimize their engine accordingly to achieve 1080p.

Resolution continues to be a problem for the current-generation consoles, where we’ve normally seen titles perform better on the PS4 than Xbox One.
