CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 3 will be in shops courtesy of Namco Bandai in Europe, confirms the studio. That means a stamp of Namco on PC, Xbox One and PS4 for the open world RPG.
The two are no strangers to one another and the publisher can't be anything but royally chuffed to bring this "next-gen RPG landscape" to fans next year, which is 30x times bigger than The Witcher 2.
PC gamers of course will be delighted by their digital DRM-free copies and don't need to give much thought to those brick-and-mortar places called 'retailers'.
"We've worked with Namco Bandai before, so our partners there know both The Witcher and the ideals that drive us as a studio," said CD Projekt RED's Adam Badowski. "We're convinced that they understand our vision for the game and that they will do a great job at letting gamers know how the game's open world and great story are going to change the next-gen RPG landscape."
The Witcher 3 is built on the studio's new RedEngine 3. We all know a studio's proprietary game engine hasn't truly made it until they hit the big '3': CryEngine 3, Unreal Engine 3, Frostbite 3...
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014. The studio is also busy with Cyberpunk 2077.
