Some of you may remember that a few weeks ago CD Projekt Red unveiled a trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 which included a message that stated they had another unannounced game that would be announced a few weeks. Well today Cd Projekt Red pulled back the curtain on their other secret title and announced the third entry to their flagship franchise, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
According to Game Informer the game will be drastically different from the previous entries in its design. The game will be an open world rather than loading from area to area, and to top it off, the world is apparently larger than Skyrim’s so there should be lots of opportunity for exploration.
Game Informer writes:
“Our March cover story gives a world-exclusive peek into the next generation of RPGs with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This standalone sequel takes the fascinating stories and characters, non-linear plotlines, and difficult decisions that the franchise is known for and puts them all in an open world 30 times larger than the previous game – an enormous setting even larger than Skyrim’s vast expanse, made possible with the new REDengine 3 technology that developer CD Projekt RED is debuting with the game. Our huge feature dives into everything The Witcher 3 has to offer, and it’s a lot: the detective work that precedes deadly combat when monster hunting, storylines that weave and twist together between political intrigue and otherworldly menaces, and a tired hero who wants to set things right but can’t put down his swords until his conscience allows – if it ever does.
Coming in 2014 on PC and “all high-end platforms available” (CD Projekt RED isn’t saying flat-out that it’s a next-gen game, but it’s a safe bet that new console announcements in the coming months will define the term “high-end platform”), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt stretches from stormy islands to war-torn forests and a sprawling dark fantasy metropolis without a loading screen anywhere to be found.”
