The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red said that developing for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC allows it to “go nuts in terms of visuals.”
"I think we are in a good moment, we don't have to choose between better graphics or performance on either PC or consoles now,” CD Projekt Red’s global head of marketing Tomasz Jarzębowski told The Sydney Morning Herald. “We can just create the best looking game possible."
Jarzębowski also said that only the future will tell if The Witcher 3 is maxing out the console’s technical capabilities, noting that games released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 continue to look better even after all these years. “We are always getting wiser and wiser, so I expect our next game will look even better,” he said.
CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski previously said that The Witcher 3 is “fairly close” to maxing out the power of the Xbox One and PS4.
The Witcher 3 was expected to launch this fall, but CD Projekt Red delayed it to February 2015 so the team could achieve a level of quality that will set it apart from other role-playing games. For more on The Witcher 3, be sure to read our recent in-depth preview of the game.
