The two are no strangers to one another and the publisher can't be anything but royally chuffed to bring this "next-gen RPG landscape" to fans next year, which is 30x times bigger than The Witcher 2.
PC gamers of course will be delighted by their digital DRM-free copies and don't need to give much thought to those brick-and-mortar places called 'retailers'.
"We've worked with Namco Bandai before, so our partners there know both The Witcher and the ideals that drive us as a studio," said CD Projekt RED's Adam Badowski. "We're convinced that they understand our vision for the game and that they will do a great job at letting gamers know how the game's open world and great story are going to change the next-gen RPG landscape."
The Witcher 3 is built on the studio's new RedEngine 3. We all know a studio's proprietary game engine hasn't truly made it until they hit the big '3': CryEngine 3, Unreal Engine 3, Frostbite 3...
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014. The studio is also busy with Cyberpunk 2077.
