The highly-anticipated RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been confirmed for Sony’s new console.
Following the unveiling of the Playstation 4 in New York on Wednesday, a number of games have been confirmed for the system. According to Forbes, included in the recent batch of announcements is CD Projekt RED’s Witcher 3.
Although many had speculated that the game would likely be available for the PS4, the company didn’t confirmed anything prior to Sony’s press conference.
CD Projekt RED’s Dam Kicinski told Polygon:
“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.”
Kotaku reports that the developer hopes to have the game finished at some point next year. Kicinski stated that the title would be available for all “high-end platforms” upon its release. The was confirmed for the PC earlier this month.
When gamers finally get an opportunity to play The Witcher 3, they can expect a much larger world to explore. According to Eurogamers, Wild Hunt will be nearly 30 times larger than previous entries in this critically-acclaimed series.
The website also explains that the game will not include story chapters or loading screens. This is all due to the developer’s brand new RED Engine 3. The company also said The Witcher 3 stands to be the “perfect RPG,” one that’s reportedly 20 times bigger than Skyrim.
