CD Projekt RED released a new video for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which Microsoft uploaded to its official Xbox YouTube channel. Unfortunately, confusion and disarray resulted when it was revealed that the footage captured was from the PC version. Given that the Xbox logo appears throughout, any viewer would naturally think that this trailer represented the Xbox One version’s visuals.

Microsoft has since rectified this by adding a disclaimer that footage was “captured on a PC”. A Microsoft representative also told GameSpot, “This morning we posted a new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to our YouTube channels featuring footage provided by CD Projekt Red that was captured from the PC version of the game and may not be reflective of final Xbox One gameplay.

“This was in no way intended to misrepresent the title on Xbox One. We have updated the description of the asset to make clear the source and platform of this footage. We apologize for any confusion and look forward to the game arriving on both Xbox One and PC on May 19, 2015.”

Now that the confusion has been cleared up, you can direct your attention to the massive scale of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s world. Seriously, it’s big.

    Any PS fan that wants to use this as ammo dont forget about how Sony said WatchDogs would be 1080p 60fps or how they said Killzone Shadow Fall was 1080p (well at least its multiplayer)

      Goes to show they both have been guilty. Now let me get my popcorn so I can enjoy the damage control.

      Personally I feel like u when it comes to ALL these companies. None of em (especially the bigger ones) are gonna put our interests first. Now if Microsoft was the first to “correct” this issue, before anyone else, then I’d give em credit for being honest. However, Kotaku spotted the high frame rate, and well, yeah lol. Probably isn’t the first bit of false footage shown by them since launch. And this really isn’t cool.

      I will say the X1 gameplay I did see was enough to keep me hyped, but dam I’d take that high frame rate if I could!

    How come there’s never a disclaimer on PC footage that states the specs of the machine that powered it? PC gaming results can vary wildly, but we never hear those complaints.
