Following on from an announcement earlier in the day thanks to this month's issue of Game Informer, CD Projekt RED have now fully announced The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is not only promising to be the ultimate game developed by the studio, but it's also going to be the final Witcher game that is to be developed by CD Projekt. Whether that means another studio or team may create future titles down the line, or it could actually be the final Witcher title as they're going primarily be focusing on Cyberpunk or perhaps a new ip.
"Imagine playing a dark fantasy game with the same great nonlinear story as in the previous Witcher titles, but now told in a world you can explore freely with no artificial boundaries. The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach further places you will need to ride a horse or sail a boat to get there. A world where your choices have truly epic consequences. From the development side, this goal is extremely demanding. Our team had to make significant design changes and our tech had to be rebuilt. But we believe that this will lead to a completely new level of nonlinearity and a whole new, richer gaming experience. As a gamer, I would love to play this kind of RPG and I think this is what many players are waiting for. This is our dream come true at CD Projekt RED, and we hope it will be the same for you!" adds Badowski.
As well as the above promises The Witcher 3 will have an improved combat system and a more immersive gameplay experience, meaning no quick time events and only intuitive roleplaying style gameplay. CD Projekt are making a lot of promises and we can only imagine they'll keep them all to make a satisfying end to the series and the story of Geralt of Rivia.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt isn't being released until 2014 and to accompany that bit of information all CD Projekt have stated is that it's going to be released simultaneously on all high-end platforms.
