A recent report from a Russian gaming website claimed that the PlayStation 4 version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt runs at 900p/30fps, while the Xbox One version will run in 720p/30fps.

We followed up with developer CD Projekt Red about this speculation and were told that an official announcement regarding the game's console resolution and frame-rate will come at a later date.

"It's just a rumor and we are not commenting [on] rumors," CD Projekt Red's PR & Marketing representative Michael Platkow-Gilewski said. "As soon as we will be ready to announce Spec we will let you know."

The report also claimed that The Witcher 3 is a "very demanding title" and a single GTX 780Ti struggles to run it for PC. The site goes on to say that the "PC version runs currently with all its bells and whistles enabled (plus 8xMSAA) with 35-45fps on a GTX 780Ti at 1080p."

Previously, CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski said that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is "fairly close" to maxing out the power of the Xbox One and PS4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was originally expected to launch later this year, but CD Projekt Red recently delayed the game to a release in February 2015.
