The Witcher 3 officially confirmed for the PS4

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was revealed this year, and will be releasing on the next-gen platforms.

We now have an official confirmation that the game is indeed coming to the PS4. The console was revealed by Sony earlier today, and a bunch of games were shown as well.

There were demonstrations from third-party developers and from their own first-party studios. The official specs of the system are quite impressive and we also have details on the PS4 controller and the PS Eye camera.

“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.

“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 game runs on the REDengine 3 and we have a lot of details on the game as well.

“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.”

The game will be released in 2014 on the PS4, Xbox 720 and PC.
