Following last night’s announcement of Sony’s new console, CD Projekt RED has confirmed The Witcher 3 title for a release on the PlayStation 4 in 2014.
Adam Badowski, the head of the studio exclaimed how thrilled he was to be on the team: “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. Of course, we couldn’t reveal any specifics about this to our fans, even though many journalists and forum members asked about when and how The Witcher might show up on Sony’s console.”
He then finally confirmed the game to be coming to the PlayStation 4: “”After yesterday’s PlayStation Meeting we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4. 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.”
From the screenshots provided so far, it goes without saying that their REDengine 3 is looking like an insane platform to build on. This time around The Witcher 3 will give the PC version a run for its money.
