The Witcher 3 will pass on PS4 Pro features due to development constraints.
Speaking with Eurogamer, the team at CD PROJECT RED are currently knee deep in development on their next big title CYBERPUNK 2077. Here’s what they had to say.
“Since we want to fully focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent [standalone game], and converting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from a full HD game into a 4K one [on console] would be too much of a time and resource-consuming process, we decided not to release an edition of Wild Hunt supporting the new features of PlayStation Pro,” CD Projekt Red told me.
Considering the circumstances this makes sense. Though I do have to wonder if making Pro features will indeed affect development time and if so will it eventually be dropped if Pro fails to sell high numbers? It’s too early to judge but we’ll see how it goes.
