CD Projekt RED said The Witcher 3 is going to be a next-gen RPG, so it only figures that the moment after the PS4 announcement is made by Sony, the developer comes forward to say The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to the system. It won’t be a PS4 exclusive, naturally, but it will be released on the system. Not only that, but CD Projekt Red says it will come to the PS4 not long after the console is released. Perhaps it’ll make our 2014 brighter.
Of course, it’s only expected that The Witcher 3 would call for PS4 style technology. CD Projekt RED confirmed it will use a new RED Engine 3 to allow for a more expansive open world and eliminate loading screens. When players join Geralt on this adventure, they can go anywhere at any time. The story and quest is non-linear. Which means it should feel a bit like a The Elder Scrolls game, only there will be a bit more structure and story to it since it is still based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels and star a protagonist with a set backstory.
The Witcher 3 won’t be a PS4 exclusive though. The developer has said from the beginning that every next-gen system will have access to the adventure in 2014. Which means that we’ll see it on the PC and probably the nextbox. You know, next-Xbox. Don’t give me that look. It’s clever. Well, I thought it was clever. Anyways, don’t let The Witcher 3 be the only reason you buy a PS4. Go in informed. Wait until after E3 2013 to really start getting excited about the next gen systems and their games.
In the meantime, keep an eye on Steam. The Witcher games tend to go on sale whenever there’s a big sale event. It would probably be a good idea to grab the first two games before getting involved in the third.
