The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Dev “Working Hard” to Optimize for Consoles, Resolution and Frame Rate Not Set in Stone
CD Projekt RED responds to reports that the game might not hit 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One.
Earlier this week, CD Projekt RED’s visual effects artist Jose Teixeira spoke about the possibility of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hitting full HD. Teixeira admitted that the game might not make it but said that the frame rate will at least be 30 FPS.
You can imagine the reaction to that.
Nonetheless, marketing manager Tomasz Tinc recently told Gamespot that, “As [The Witcher 3 visual effects artist Jose Teixeira] said, we are working hard on optimizing the game and nothing is set in stone. Our engine team remains optimistic and we will surely squeeze the most we can out of each console. I know you might be expecting concrete info like the final frame rate and resolution, but it’s simply impossible to give you that sort of thing before the optimization process is complete.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due for a February 2015 release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Whether it hits 1080p on consoles or not, there’s still plenty of time to speculate.
