The Witcher 3 Is Coming To The PS4 Next Year

Open world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is headed to the PS4, the game's developers revealed today. And boy do they seem excited!

"We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4," said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio. "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."

"The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great," added Badowski. "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 out sometime this year on "all high-end platforms available."

In case you missed it, read Kotaku's review of The Witcher 2 (above).


    I think Sony has really nailed the architecture. This was a developer who said they just didn't have the expertise to develop for PS3, and now it sounds like they can do an easy port.

    Anyone find it funny that they mentioned Bethesda first? Maybe they wanted to make sure there were no hard feelings...

    The Witcher 3 Is Coming To The PS4 Next Year

    The Witcher 3 will be out sometime this year on “all high-end platforms available.”

    Which is it?!

      Well, if it were to release this year, but before the PS4 or Xboxthingy are out, then yeah, it could release on PC, and that would be "all high-end platforms available."

      Of course, as it is, it's releasing in 2014, so it's just an error on the part of the author.

      The leaked hardware specs for the next Xbox are so similar to the PS4 that they're probably doing both. And PC as well, obviously.

    Hoping they'll do a PS4 port of Witcher 2 as well, with maxed out visuals.

    That's great, but I think even though I'll probably be a day 1 purchaser of the PS4, I'll probably still get The Witcher 3 for PC. More likely to get an Enhanced Edition etc.

      Yeah, CDPR treat their PC fans incredibly well.
