The WItcher 3: Wild Hunt looks to have its sights set on the PlayStation 4, confirming it as a next-gen role-playing game!

The newest CD Project RED game is going to bring Geralt to the magical land of the PS4, packing along the REDengine 3 and hours of open-world RPG gameplay.

In a press release, Adam Badowski, head of CD Project RED studio, said:

"After yesterday's PlayStation Meeting we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4. The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house REDengine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we're looking forward to using in our game."

The dark fantasy game promises plenty of exploration, a non-linear story, and improved combat. Players wanting to step into Geralt's shoes will find plenty to love about the title, which will be released, according to Badowski, "in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms available."

We know from yesterday's announcement that the PS4 is set for a Holiday 2013 release, but if it aims for the same window, then we may very well see The Witcher 3 on the next Xbox.

Let us know if you're excited about this announcement and whether you'd rather get the game on the PS4 or the yet-to-be-announced Xbox 720.
