"The new [PS4] hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great," says CD Projekt RED.

CD Projekt RED has been keeping its collective trap shut until now, because it wasn't allowed to spill any beans before Sony got its chance on stage. However in the wake of the PS4 announcement comes news from the Polish developer that its Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt title shall be a PS4 release, sometime in 2014.

"The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great," says CD Projekt's Adam 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."

Badowski went on to say that the PS4 would give his team a chance to really play with some innovative design ideas. He's not prepared to say exactly when in 2014 we'll see Geralt's last adventure; for the moment, he's just happy to be one of the third party developers working on a PS4 title.

I hope it isn't just PS4; considering the PS4's hardware, it will probably be even more expensive than the PS3. One can only hope though I suppose.

Edit: Thank you to all who has told me that The Witcher 3 will also definitely be on PC.

I can't see them not releasing it on PC at least at some point since CDProjekt have always been big advocates of the PC platform as well as no DRM.

'The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great'

Hate to be that guy, but hasn't the hardware to do something great been around long enough on, ya know, the PC?

Don't get me wrong, I like consoles and will most likely pick up next gen, but to pretend that console specs are something revolutionary, is quite frankly, ridiculous.

Chances are, it won't be on Xbox.

Still going to be better on PC anyway.

Pity, it would have been one hell of a launch title.

I sincerely doubt it: If Crysis is the game PC gamers run on their PC to test them, the Witcher is the series they actually play.

It is when you're faced with the prospect of streamlining your game for the consol port.

it will definitely be released on the pc. that said get back to work on cyberpunk 2077 you slackers !

Witcher 2 had a 360 release, which didn't really effect the PC version.

Here's hoping they don't compromise the PC version for the PS4 one.

Except that the games don't work. I loved what I got to play of both Witcher 1 and 2, but the constant CTDs made me give up on both of them. I've tried all 20 or so fixes on every forum I could find and there was absolutely no way I could get those games to not crash every 5-30 minutes. I'll hold off on getting Witcher 3 until I hear from multiple reliable sources that it doesn't crash frequently on pc. I really hope so, because I would honestly love to actually play a Witcher game.

True but that was because it was released on the 360 a year later, although they did give us new content and aslong as TW3 is also a PC title then woo! more awsomesauce for everyone

Witcher 3 was first announced as a PC game. So yes, it'll be on the PC. I'm betting it will be a simultaneous release.

Eh, that's about what they said in the previous press statements. I suppose we know now it won't be coming on the new Xbox.

Oh boy, here comes the PC supremacist propaganda machine. How dare you insult me.

Why should people pay $3000 just to play games? Didn't you know that consoles still have a long way to go? They are totally very powerful, people just don't know it yet. Oh, and by the way, graphics don't even matter, stop being a graphics whore. Check mate, PC supremacist.

Not sure if serious...

I own consoles as well as a PC, so I have the best of both worlds.

That was so over the top and absurd, it makes me sad about the people who actually set the expectations in these sorts of conversations that low.

I've been around here long enough to see both ends of the spectrum, so I was just checking :D

Well, considering the likely expensive price, my already having a gaming PC and steam sales. Yeah, doubt I'll wait to pick up a PS4.

Hopefully it will release on both the PS4 and the PC at the same time.
