It will be the first time the series has been seen on a Sony platform. The Witcher 3 will be launched simultaneously on all "high-end" platforms when the game comes out in 2014, confirmed the Polish developer.

"We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4," said CD Projekt Red boss Adam Badowski.

"It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft, or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4's life cycle. Of course, we couldn't reveal any specifics about this to our fans, even though many journalists and forum members asked about when and how The Witcher might show up on Sony's console."

"After yesterday's PlayStation Meeting, we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4," added Badowski.

"The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house REDengine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we're looking forward to using in our game," said Badowski.

The Witcher 3 was announced at the start of February, with many speculating then that the game would quickly be confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's next Xbox.
