While cross generational games like “Assassin’s Creed IV” and the upcoming “Watch Dogs” are everywhere at the moment, the transition to the new console generation is beginning.
Case in point, CD Projekt RED has announced that one of next year’s most anticipated AAA titles – “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” will only run on the new consoles. Story writer Jakub Szamalek says:
“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”.
