CD Projeckt RED has confiremd that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will arrive in 2014 to Playstation 4.
CD Projeckt RED is proud to announce that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released for Playstation 4 in 2014, as well as other consoles.
According to Adam Badowski:
“We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4. 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
So guys, if you like open world RPG's, you can't miss this great game.

Round table with SCE WWS president Shuhei Yoshida.
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has shared a few more details about the just revealed console, including some info about 'The Last Guardian' (hint: the game isn't ready yet).
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has shared a few more info about the upcoming PlayStation 4 console just announced last night at their PS Meeting event.
Here are some interesting comments from a few different interviews and a round table with media:
- PlayStation 4 does not require an internet connection.
Asked whether the system requires an always-online internet connection, Yoshida said, “You can play offline, but you may want to keep it connected. The system has the low-power mode – I don’t know the official term – that the main system is shut down but the subsystem is awake. Downloading or updating or you can wake it up using either the tablet, smartphone or PS Vita.”
If it wasn’t clear, he reiterated. “You can go offline totally. Social is big for us, but we understand there are some people who are anti-social! So if you don’t want to connect to anyone else, you can do that.”
- No need to show PS4 console yet.
"The console is just a box," he told Polygon. "The controller was very important to show because it has the share button, but the console is just a share button."
- Will we see Gaikai’s cloud services on the PlayStation 3 as well?
"That’s the vision. That’s what [Gaikai CEO] David Perry said. In the future the ultimate goal is everything everywhere. … So when we say everywhere, like every device, including the smartphones, TVs … refrigerators [Laughs] … that’s our goal. But we have to phase services step-by-step."
- Microtransactions and free-to-play games.
"I totally expect many games to show up on PS4 that are free-to-play or will have microtransactions or subscriptions, many different kind of things that are happening on different devices. These things will just work. I’m a big fan of some of these games as well."
- Downloadable PlayStation 3 PSN games on the PS4 (BC).
Yoshida confirmed that the PS4 does not have hardware-based backward compatibility for both downloadable and disc-based P3 games. But he added, “Unless, somehow, some games work on emulation. The easiest thing technically would be to make PS1 games work on PS4 with emulation, but we are not talking about our emulation plans as yet.”
When it comes to transferring other PSN purchases to the PS4, Yoshida said, “We could do it if we choose to; we know who’s bought what. But we haven’t decided yet.”
Yoshida also mentioned cloud support as one way for enabling older titles on the PS4, but he wasn’t ready to announce anything yet.
- PS4 versions of big PS3 games being considered.
"Yes, so, we've been making some of our PS2 games available upgraded and published on PS3, and in some cases like God of War or Shadow of the Colossus, some people say this is the better version of the original game, so something like that, we find it very satisfying from a development standpoint, and those who create original titles are thrilled to see more people playing their games, because of the update. So I think for some games it will make sense for us to look at, but we are not talking about any more about our titles other than the four titles."
- Gaikai streaming on the PS Vita on launch games.
"I’d be heartbroken if it doesn’t on day one. … My expectation is we have to have all games work on PS Vita, unless it’s like a camera-only game."
- PS Vita bundles with the PS4.
"Personally, I’d like to see that … for some retailers create some nice bundles. But I think it’s way too early to talk about the final package, what’s in the box now, and much it costs."
- 3D on PS4.
"It’s not a focus, but it [PS4] does do it, and it does it better. So more games will run at 1080p and 60fps, so it’s an easier, better experience when you watch them on a 3D TV. … 3D was a big thing a couple years ago. We made it a big thing, because it was led by the consumer electronics side of Sony. … But now the consumer electronics side of Sony, all the company’s have shifted from 3DTV to something else. So, they’re not talking about it."
- The Last Guardian.
Is the Last Guardian still a PS3 title?
Yoshida: I’m not ready to talk about that … sorry … we’ve broken promises, we are waiting for the right to time reintroduce the Last Guardian. I’m not going to say anything beyond what Uead-san [lead designer Fumito Ueda] said.
- Also, Sony Computer Entertainment of America CEO Jack Tretton added that the PS4 is 'still in development in terms of final specs and design', and that they "hope" the console won't cost $599 at launch...
Tretton said that "we’re certainly capable of showing playable game content, but we don’t have a mass-production box that we can bring out and pull out. That’s still in development in terms of final specs and design."
He defended the decision to show it later this year on the grounds that looks aren't as important as capability: "You certainly look at it when you insert a disc, but for most people, it’s behind a cabinet or on a shelf somewhere and you spend all your time looking at the screen. And we wanted to show people the screen."
We're not sure whether anything significant will change for the "final specs," nor how much the final product will cost, though Tretton says he hopes the price point will be lower than the PlayStation 3's original $599.
Well, there you have it. Expect more info about the the upcoming console in the upcoming days and weeks!
