Well, crap: Witcher 3 PC requirements released

Console version it is!

For some reason, I assumed I’d be able to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC and have it look and run alright, but these newly-released system specifications suggest otherwise.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz
  • AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660
  • AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
  • RAM 6GB
  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
  • DirectX 11
  • HDD Space 40 GB
Recommended System Requirements
  • Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3.4 GHz
  • AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770
  • AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
  • RAM 8GB
  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
  • DirectX 11
  • HDD Space 40 GB

There’s time to upgrade, at least — game doesn’t release until May 19, 2015. I’m starting to think that getting it on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be my best bet.
