The Witcher 3 Won’t Support PS4 Pro Features

Developer CD Projekt Red announced today that The Witcher 3 – their award-winning, open world RPG – won’t be patched to support PlayStation 4 Pro features.

"Since we want to fully focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent, 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 Eurogamer.

Currently, The Witcher 3 does support 4K resolutions on PC. It’s unknown if the developer will have a similar stance on the Xbox Scorpio version.

Are you still playing The Witcher 3? Disappointed that you won’t be able to see Geralt with prettier hair on consoles? Let us know in the comments below!

4ks the new buzz word which no-one will actually use just yet. Consoles still need to be introduced to QHD (1440p).

Fair enough. I would be surprised if they get it on Scorpio

Well put and interesting move from a big game that is generally praised for its beauty. The list of compatible games is still looking rather short

I wouldn't expect old games to do this anyway. I thought it would just be new games going forward

If you had any friends you might have been allowed to visit and see it running just fine on their console.

Or getting 1080p 60 fps on all of their games? :p

Run just fine considering how good it looked on my PS4. Further, one of my friends has it on XB1 and it looked and ran identical. So there's that. Maybe your XB1 is faulty, or more likely, you're just trolling as usual.

C'mooon guys look at Undead's reactions! Someone just tried insulting him personally and he isn't even phased. If that's not a strong example of character that his mother/father encouraged him to nurture, then I don't know what is.

"Don't let people get you down" "Don't listen to what the bullies say" "Stand long against adversary" "Be yourself"

Right move considering the resources it would take for the conversion.

Most PS4P games use 1440p upscaled to 4K or downsampled to 1080p. HDR is just a wider colour range that 4K tv's use. So the brightest whites on the same display as the darkest blacks you have seen on a TV. Its not really a buzz word, in my opinion it's more impressive leap in display tech than even 4K.

Well maybe you and him can head to IGN or any other games media site and read and write as much continuous negativity and troll worthy posts as you like.
People at NZG are generally civil, have opinions yes that can include negative ones, but dont preach hate or negative opinions literally on every post they write on..
Just because they are just that sort of person or looking to do nothing but get a reaction by trolling doesnt really just make it ok here like you're sort of saying.

Define horribly?
Ran well on my PS4. Graphics were great and fps stayed solid (95% of the time, and only quick dips at that)
People that dont have a decent PC to play it on at 1440p 144fps wouldnt have the comparison , yes that would be noticable to regular pc gamers to drop to ps4 prehaps but wouldnt say it would "run horribly"
