Michał Krzemiński has commented on the possible graphics disparities between the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” In an interview with Games TM on March 10, the senior art producer from CD Projekt Red disclosed that he won’t be commenting on the “resolution war” between the two next-generation consoles, adding that it is still too early in the production cycle to be talking about the differences.
He went on to promise that the development team will be working hard to make the third main installment of “The Witcher” series “run and feel equally awesome on every platform.” You can take a look at the visuals from the open-world action role-playing game in the slideshow gallery to the left side of this article and his comments below:
If you’re asking me to throw a rock in the PS4 vs. Xbox One resolution war, I won’t. The game is not finished and talking about resolutions, framerates and min. specs (for PC) is, I think, pointless. Everything can change during the optimization process at the end of development. Rest assured, we’re working our butts off make The Witcher 3 run and feel equally awesome on every platform.
Michał Krzemiński also talked about some of new possibilities that opened up with the more powerful PS4 and Xbox One consoles. He revealed that “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” can now look “mind-blowing” while offering a seamless open-world experience with no loading screens at the same time. Several visual effects can also be added without affecting the performance of the video game. You can take a look at the rest of his statement from the interview below:
There’s no one specific thing that next-gens allowed us to do. There’s a whole ton of them. Essentially, the game can look mind-blowing, we’ve got seamless gameplay with no loading screens (almost everything is streamed during gameplay, cutscenes etc.), we can add visual effects unavailable to us before because of performance issues and so on, the list is huge. All this constitutes a giant, lush open world with a myriad of things to do, quests, adventures, monster hunts, events and so on.
“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is now set to launch next year on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
