While we’ve all been sure that work on a sequel to the fantastic The Witcher 2 has been underway for a while, CD Projekt RED have been keeping quiet about it. But now they’ve decided to spill the beans and officially reveal The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt via Game Informer magazine.
According to the magazine The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will take all of the hard decisions, branching plotlines and fantastic writing of the previous games and slap it all into a massive open-world that’s 30-times larger than the entirety of the Witcher 2, which would make it larger than Bethesda’s already huge Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim! All of this will be made possible with the new REDengine 3 that will debut with the game.
That’s not all, though, because CDProjekt RED may also be hinting at the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being a next-generation game by saying that it will be coming to PC and “all high-end platforms” in 2014. It’s possible the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will straddle the current and next generations, but given the release date, inevitable announcement of the new consoles and the scope of the game itself it seems fairly likely that we’ll be seeing Geralt return on the next-gen consoles.
More information on the game will become available when people get their hands on the latest issue of Game Informer.
