CD Projekt Makes The Witcher 3 on PlayStation 4 Official

Witcher3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to PlayStation 4, an announcement CD Projekt RED is finally able to make official today following yesterday’s PlayStation Meeting.

This comes as no great surprise as CD Projekt already said the game was coming to all “high-end platforms,” but it’s still exciting to hear the words The Witcher and PlayStation 4 used together considering neither of the previous games were released on a PlayStation platform.

CD Projekt RED studio head Adam Badowski had this to say about the news:

“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. 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.

The Witcher 3 will be released in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms available. We know that our fans are looking forward to that date already, but we want to make it clear that this story is a standalone, and we will be sure introduce newcomers fully to the world so that they don’t miss a beat. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will start with an breathtaking opening, which will give many insights to the lore. The game design will allow smooth introduction to new characters and encourage players to discover the vast, living, open world of this installment of Geralt’s tale.”
