This really shouldn't come as a surprise. When the game was first announced I remember something in the press release saying "Witcher 3
will arrive on all available platforms" Which pretty much means "It will be on next gen consoles but we cant talk about that right now" but hey PS4 was announced yesterday and here we are with the news that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
will be available on the Playstation 4.
Scheduled to be released in 2014, Witcher 3
is the final chapter of the Witcher
series but it is also a standalone story that grants players the ability to live the life of a Witcher. I haven't finished Witcher 2
yet but it sounds like you can jump into this game and they will give you the back story like they did at the beginning of Witcher 2
so you wont be lost. The game promises to be "the most robust and breathtaking game ever created by CD Projekt RED, combining a free-roaming environment with a non-linear story which makes the game a real RPG fans dream come true. Finally the game will feature an improved combat system that allows players to feel like they are fighting like a real monster hunter, a Witcher.
Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED Studio says the following about the game.
"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"
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
will launch in 2014 on "all high-end platforms available." There it is again. They already confirmed its on PS4... sounds like it will be on the next Microsoft system as well but since its not announced they cant talk about it yet.
