A couple of days ago, we shared with you some new images for The Witcher 3. Apparently, those shots were not as mind-blowing as previous screenshots and some people began suggesting that the game has been already downgraded. Therefore, CDPR felt the need to clarify things, and claimed that the final version won’t be downgraded visually in any possible way.
As CD Projekt RED’s community manager told Worldsfactory:
“Please keep in mind that the game is still in production phase. Certain things are still being worked on. The final version of the game will look better than what can be seen in the latest screenshots – no matter the platform. As you probably know, when publishing screenshots, some of them can be subjectively less appealing than others (depending on one’s opinion), that’s perfectly normal. The most important thing here is that the game will come out looking gorgeous when we are done working on it. There will be no downgrade.”
What really surprised us – in those recently released screenshots – was the absence of NVIDIA’s fur tech on the wolves. We don’t know whether CDPR deliberately disabled that feature or not – or whether that image was from a very old build – however it does make you wonder why the company had that feature disabled.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently planned for a February 2015 release!
