In what has been perhaps one of the worst kept secrets around, CD Projekt RED has officially taken the wraps off of the next entry in The Witcher series. Dubbed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Geralt of Rivia is off on a whole new adventure across an open world 30 times larger than previous games (half an hour by horseback!). The game world is even larger than that of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and there's not a loading screen in sight thanks to REDengine 3. Game Informer has the inside scoop on the new game and all the early details CD Projekt is willing to spill, though it isn't much. What we do know is that Geralt is sporting a wicked new beard as he journeys through a deeply personal story filled with political intrigue and hellacious monsters.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due for release in 2014 for PCs and "all high-end platforms available," which more than likely means the next PlayStation and Xbox once those get revealed. If you're wondering about who Geralt is journeying with on the cover of Game Informer, well, get in line as CD Projekt isn't saying a word. The style of dress resembles Triss Merigold, though your guess is as good as mine. Keep it tuned for more details as CD Projekt unveils them, and try not to start ticking down the days till The Witcher 3 releases.
