CD Projekt RED knows how to make a great role-playing game. The Witcher series is a phenomenal franchise built off of great dialogue and fantastic decision-making / morality system. The Witcher 2 embodied all the aspects of what make RPGs great and was well deserving of all the Game of the Year accolades it received a couple years ago.
CD Projekt RED has now come out and announced the third and final game in the franchise: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This will obviously be CD Projekt RED’s most ambitious title to date. Set to release in 2014 “on all high-end platforms,” this leaves much to speculation as to whether this will be released on this generation’s consoles or on the next generation. I can only drool at the thought of The Witcher 3 coming out in the launch window of the next Microsoft or Sony console. The Witcher 3 is being built in the recently announced REDengine 3, leaving plenty of room for growth on a new console.
“The captivating and nonlinear story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes place in a rich, truly open world environment. A world which is thrilling to explore, full of daring adventures, momentous quests, memorable characters, and unique monsters. Players will freely travel through woods, lakes, mountains, cities, and villages. Each region is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends and problems. The world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is 30 times bigger than The Witcher 2,” said Adam Badowski, head of the studio.
I know it’s just a teaser trailer, but CD Projekt RED already has me ready to fork over some cash to get my hands on this final installment of Geralt of Rivia. Stay tuned to COIN-OP TV for more on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
