The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt RED is fairly close to maxing out the capability of PS4 and Xbox One, according to studio co-founder Marcin Iwinski.

It follows the latest Witcher 3 trailer, and our own Witcher 3 interview, in which we ask CD Projekt RED just how far it’s pushing the new consoles.

Now, speaking with IGN, Iwinski discussed Witcher 3 development on PS4 and Xbox One, and explained, “It is extremely manageable. 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.

“We made a decision to go next-gen roughly two and a half years ago, so we’ve spent a lot of time with these machines, and it’s been a great experience across all three platforms. On the old platforms, namely the Xbox 360 and PS3, we probably would have had to sacrifice nearly half of our vision.”

On the game’s PC specs, he teased, “(Laughs) We’ll be releasing that information soon, but you can already start saving up for an upgrade.”

From what you’ve seen so far, do you feel that these claims are on the money? Let us know below.
