While The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt wasn't present at Sony's PlayStation 4 event, CD Projekt RED has announced this morning that the final Witcher game would be available for the PS4. No real surprise there.
The Polish developer was keeping quiet for some time, but after yesterday's PlayStation Meeting, they can finally let the cat out of the bag. CEO Adam Kiciński had a lot to say, too.
"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” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio."
When it was revealed earlier this month, The Witcher 3 was already confirmed as a PC title. CD Projekt did mention, however, that the RPG would also be making its way to "top-of-the-line consoles," which pretty much implied it would be released to the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox.
Considering Witcher 2 was released for and did well on the Xbox 360, we're betting the third game will be announced later as a "Durango" title too.
