The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches on PS4 in 2014

CD Projekt RED has today confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will launch on PlayStation 4 in 2014 and will be the final episode in the RPG series.

Few details have been confirmed, though we do know it will be feature the same open-world exploration as previous games and feature a brand new story, while CD Projekt plans to take advantage of the technical capabilities of the PS4 with its next-gen REDEngine 3.

Here’s what they had to say:

“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,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio.”

“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”
