Whilst we get all excited about the upcoming consoles from Microsoft and Sony, Witcher developers CD Projekt Red are all ready working on the next edition of their own REDEngine. Unveiling details about the engine's upcoming third iteration, studio head Adam Badowski says:
"With the REDengine 3 we combine the positive aspects of both approaches for the first time, creating an open environment with a complex, multi-thread story."
The Polish studio are promising that the new engine "begins to blur the line between pre-rendered CGI movies and real time rendered graphics."
The Witcher 2 looked exceptional and hopefully if Cyberpunk 2077 is being developed for high end PCs, and the next generation of consoles, then we're sure to see an amazing looking game. Here's hoping the story and gameplay will measure up to the visuals.
