A new console generation allowed CD Projekt Red to “go nuts” with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s visuals without having to worry about performance.
“Because we are developing the game for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, we go nuts in terms of visuals. We want the game to look as beautiful as possible,” Tomasz Jarzebowski, global head of marketing for CD Projekt Red, told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“I think we are in a good moment, we don’t have to choose between better graphics or performance on either PC or consoles now, we can just create the best looking game possible.”
When asked if this meant that The Witcher 3 would push the limits of PlayStation 4 and Xbox, he replied, “If it maxes out the consoles? Well, the future will tell. There are games that are being released for current-gen that look way better than everything created so far. We are always getting wiser and wiser, so I expect our next game will look even better.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release February 2015, following its delay from 2014, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
