The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt officially announced

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has officially been announced in the latest issue of Game Informer. We haven’t had a chance to comb through the issue ourselves, but it seems the game will be out sometime in 2014 for PCs and “all high-end platforms available”, which we all know is code for next generation consoles.

Tit bits of information floating around the internet seem to suggest the game world will be roughly 30 times larger than that of The Witcher 2 and it could take players anything from 30 to 40 minutes to traverse the game world on horseback. This massive game world is possible thanks to the new REDengine 3 technology developer CD Projekt RED plan on debuting with this game.

Game Informer assures fans that The Witcher 3 is packed to the gills with content.  “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.”

Expect more The Witcher 3 information in the coming weeks.
