Bad news PC gaming fans, for Cd Projekt RED’s Marcin Iwinski has warned that you’re going to want to get busy upgrading if you want any chance of playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The latest iteration of The Witcher franchise is very close to maxing out both the Xbox One’s and the Playstation 4’s capabilities, with the PC release set to need some hefty requirements if you’re going to be wanting it looking anywhere near its best…
When quizzed on what sort of PC system requirements are going to be needed to run The Witcher III on higher settings Iwinski laughed and said; "We’ll be releasing that information soon, but you can already start saving up for an upgrade.”
When it comes to the latest console’s from Microsoft and Sony, it appears that CD Projekt RED is already stretching these consoles almost to their limits, just months after release. Iwinski said; “It is extremely manageable. There is a lot of power in these machines, and I don’t want to say we’re using them to their capacity, but we’re fairly close to doing so."
He continued; “We made a decision to go next-gen roughly two and a half years ago, so we’ve spent a lot of time with these machines, and it’s been a great experience across all three platforms. On the old platforms, namely the Xbox 360 and PS3, we probably would have had to sacrifice nearly half of our vision.”
We’re expecting system requirements for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt imminently from CD Projekt RED. What sort of setup do you think is going to be needed to get this gorgeous looking game running smoothly?
Do you think the home consoles are becoming underpowered too early in their life cycle, in five years time will they be light years behind PC gaming performance?
