No firm release date was set though the game is expected to be released on Sony's next gen platform in 2014.

"We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4," said Adam Badowski, studio head at CD Projekt RED.

"It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4's lifecycle. Of course, we couldn't reveal any specifics about this to our fans, even though many journalists and forum members asked about when and how The Witcher might show up on Sony's console.

"After yesterday's PlayStation Meeting we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4. The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house REDengine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we're looking forward to using in our game"

The studio also appeared to confirm that Witcher 3 will also be released on Microsoft's next generation Xbox.

"The Witcher 3 will be released in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms available," Badowski said.

Sony revealed the PlayStation 4 at a New York press conference on Wednesday.
The PS4 release date is set for "holiday 2013", likely across Japan, Europe and the US.
