The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the last chapter in Geralt’s story, has been dubbed a “next-generation RPG,” but there haven’t been many platform details other than that. Now, according to recent information from developer CD Projekt RED, it’s been revealed that the highly anticipated title will not be available on current consoles.
Yes, the words “next generation” are pretty plain on Game Informer’s upcoming magazine cover, but during a generational shift, many titles see a release on both old and new hardware. However, the developer behind Wild Hunt has let its fans know that this won’t be the case for this open-world adventure.
To anyone who’s asking: No, we are not releasing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for current generation consoles.
