The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt coming to next-generation consoles

Looks like the cat got out of the bag a bit early. CD Projekt Red was due to announce a new game today, largely believed to be a sequel to our 2011 Game of the Year. The newly-released digital issue of Game Informer has revealed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As expected, it represents the series' move into the next generation.

According to the magazine, the upcoming sequel will be a "truly open world," with a world that is supposedly larger than the one featured in Skyrim. The new adventure will run on REDengine 3 and will be coming out on "all top-of-the-line" consoles, meaning this will likely make an appearance on both the next PlayStation and the next Xbox systems.

More details are sure to be revealed tomorrow, when the game is officially announced.
