The Witcher 3 Is Coming to the PS4. It'll Be Out Next Year.

Open world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is headed to the PS4, the game's developers revealed today. And boy do they seem excited!

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

"The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great," added Badowski. "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."

The Witcher 3 will be out sometime next year on "all high-end platforms available."

Eds Note: The original version of this story said The Witcher 3 would be out this year. That is incorrect. It will be out in 2014. Apologies for any confusion this caused.
