The Witcher 3 Close To Maxing Out The PS4 And Xbox One
In past generations, developers needed time to tap a new game console's full potential. To this day, many believe they never did "max out" the PS2.
However, the new systems are much more accessible right off the bat, which is part of why they're so much more appealing to game makers. Take CD Projekt RED, for instance:
CEO Marin Iwinski told IGN that his team is using close to 100% of what the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have to offer. The game in question, of course, is the developer's hugely anticipated RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
"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."
Iwinski added that if they had decided to put this tremendous effort on the PS3 and Xbox 360, it would've sacrificed "nearly half of our vision." A few days ago, Iwinski was quoted as saying that The Witcher 3 on the "old" consoles would be "impossible." Well, impossible to maintain that aforementioned vision, anyway.
Elsewhere in the interview, Iwinski talked about the upcoming sequel's massive size and length. He said there will be 36 possible endings and well over 100 hours of gameplay available for the uber-diligent. Yep, that sounds like quite the quest.
