The Witcher 3 will not have Visual cutbacks on PS4/Xbox One relative to PC
CD Projekt RED has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will look and play the same across all platforms i.e The Witcher 3 will not have visual and graphics cutbacks on PS4 and Xbox One relative to PC.
Our friend at DualShock asked The Witcher 3 Game Director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz: “You’re at the forefront of the adoption of the next generation consoles. Are you already working on the devkits? What are your impressions of the Xbox One and PS4? Are there any marked differences in horsepower between the two?”
To this Konrad replied: “Yes, we’ve been working on Microsoft and Sony-provided devkits for some time now, well before the consoles were officially presented. As for the differences between the two — both are very potent pieces of hardware and developing games on them is a pleasure.”
Konrad was further quizzed: “Will the game look any different on different platforms or you’re aiming to make it look the same? Can gamers with high-end PCs expect better visual fidelity at maximum settings like for The Witcher 2?”
To this he replied: “We’re aiming to deliver the same experience on all the platforms – we’re developing The Witcher 3 on next gen platforms so visual cutbacks will not be the case here. Eyecandy for everyone!”
This means what we saw at E3 2013 about The Witcher is what we will be getting on next-gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One).
