The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Announced by CD Projekt Red

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in development at CD Projekt Red, the company confirmed after Game Informer unveiled the game as its March cover story.

The confirmation comes as no surprise as rumors of such a title being in development have been circulating for the past few months. Even with Game Informer’s March issue still a few weeks away, the video game news outlet has revealed some details on the upcoming title, starting with the semi-confirmation that The Witcher 3 will be a true next-generation title.

[adsense250itp]Many titles have been rumored for next–gen consoles but this is the first title to be confirmed. The Witcher 3 is set for a 2014 release for PC and “all high-end platforms available.”

CD Projekt Red said this will be the last in the epic role-playing game series from the developer. Although CD Projekt Red will not be working on The Witcher, it is possible the series could live on in the hands of another developer.

The Witcher 3 will take the franchise in a new direction. The game will be taking all the stories, characters, non-linear plotlines and difficult decisions that the series is known for and throwing it into a massive (and we mean MASSIVE) open world design. The open world in The Witcher 3 will be 30 times larger than the 2011 title, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The scale is even larger than Skyrim’s landscape.

The huge environment will be possible with the use of the developer’s new REDengine 3 technology, which will be making its debut with this title. The landscape is said to feature everything from stormy islands and war-torn forest to a dark fantasy metropolis in a world without loading screens. It definitely seems as though the new REDengine 3 has a lot of power under its hood.

Many new elements will also be making their way into the series with the newest installment of the series, including some form of detective work that will precede monster hunting. It will also feature a tired hero with a guilty conscience, which we should be finding out a lot more about in the coming weeks.
