The Witcher 3 announcement teased with site counter

News forthcoming tomorrow, according to CD Projekt

CD Projekt is poised to make an announcement regarding The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, according to a counter on the game's official site.

Posted earlier today, the timer points to an announcement this coming Wednesday.


The news comes ahead of CD Projekt's appearance at Gamescom 2013 next week, where the studio is expected to demonstrate both The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.

Announced in February, The Witcher 3 has been confirmed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The game will boast an open world 30 times larger than that featured in its predecessor, and is being built using the studio's new RedEngine 3 technology.

The studio confirmed last month that it has no plans to release DLC for The Witcher 3. "We don't believe in that," game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said. "We believe patches, fixes and additional content should be provided to gamers free of charge."

The Witcher 3 will release in 2014.
