Sony Computer Entertainment has provided an updated list of confirmed development support for the PS4. According to a report by ComputerAndVideoGames on Feb. 25, the new listing dropped the initial catalog of 58 companies down to 30. Although a lot of the developers, most notably Mojang from “Minecraft,” were removed, some new ones were also added. CD Projekt RED, the studio working on the upcoming “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” were finally acknowledged although they announced their support for the next-generation system on the same day as the unveiling of the PS4. You can check out some screens from “Minecraft” and “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” in the slideshow at the top of this article.
Aside from Mojang, Criterion Games was also removed from the list. The other notable companies that were added include 2K Games, Codemasters, Deep Silver, IO Interactive and Ninja Theory.
“Minecraft” was first released for multiple platforms in North America on Nov. 18, 2011. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is expected to come out for the PC, PS4 and possibly Xbox 720 in 2014. Sony will be launching their next-generation system later this holiday season.
