The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Official PC Recommended Specs Are For Mid-High Settings At 1080p

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of our most highly anticipated games of 2015. However, it appears that PC gamers will need a really beefy rig in order to enjoy 60fps with max settings. According to CD Projekt RED, the game’s recommended specs are not for its Ultra settings, meaning that there will be very few gamers able to enjoy it at its Ultra settings.

When asked about the game’s recommended specs and whether gamers would be able to run the game at Ultra settings with such a system,┬áCD Projekt RED told WitcherSite (a Polish fan site dedicated to The Witcher series) that the official specs were for mid-high settings:

“No, recommended specs are supposed to let you play on mid-high settings in 1920×1080(Full HD)”

And there you have it everyone. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt aims to be the next Crysis game (in terms of its PC system requirements) and it will be interesting to see what kind of PC will be required to run it at Ultra settings (with NVIDIA’s features enabled).

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases this May.

Kudos to our reader ‘[Chaotic]’ for bringing this to our attention!
