CD Projekt Red’s Jakub Szamalek has finally issued a clarification as to why the next-installment in The Witcher series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is not coming to PS3 and Xbox 360.
According to Jakub Szamalek, The Witcher 3 is “Too Huge, Too Detailed” for current generation consoles, and so CD Projekt RED decided not to compromise the quality.
In a recent video interview to Connected Digital World, Jakub Szamalek went on to reveal some details regarding development work of The Witcher 3 for PS4 and Xbox One.
“Well we are afraid that the game we are creating is just too huge, too detailed to put on the current generation consoles. We didn’t want to compromise the quality of the game to get the size we wanted.”
“This is why we are really excited that our work with “The Witcher 3” coincided with this new generation because we can finally create a world which is the size we wanted to be with the level of detail and care put into “The Witcher 2.”
“So the world of “The Witcher 3” will be much bigger but it will be just as beautiful and as carefully crafted as “The Witcher 2.””
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will arrive at somepoint in 2014 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. CD Projekt RED is also working on a brand new IP called as “Cyberpunk”.
