Witcher 3 "fairly close" to maxing out power of Xbox One, PS4
CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski says studio was able to achieve the mark by deciding years ago to skip Xbox 360 and PS3.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt leverages nearly every ounce of power from the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, developer CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski has revealed.
"There is a lot of power in these machines, and I don't want to say we're using them to their capacity, but we're fairly close to doing so," Iwinski told IGN.
Part of the reason why CD Projekt Red has been able to nearly max out the power of the new machines is because the studio decided to skip Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 more than two years ago.
"So we've spent a lot of time with these machines, and it's been a great experience across all three platforms. On the old platforms, namely the Xbox 360 and PS3, we probably would have had to sacrifice nearly half of our vision," Iwinski said.
Earlier this week, Iwinski said releasing an uncompromised version of The Witcher 3 on Xbox 360 or PS3 would be "impossible."
Also in the interview, Iwinski reiterated that The Witcher 3 has more than 36 possible endings and upwards of 100 hours of gameplay altogether. For more on The Witcher 3-- due out in 2014 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC--check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
