Still basking in the glow of the big PS4 reveal yesterday? Eager to find out more information? Well, we might not have pictures of the console or price points for you, but we've found out another game making its way to the system in the future, something that didn't show up anywhere in NYC last night.

CD Projekt RED is finally bringing their immersive RPG series to the Playstation when they release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sometime in 2014. Previously the series had only been available on the PC and XBOX so dedicated Sony fans haven't had the chance to experience the depth and freedom that The Witcher series is known for.

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

Another thing that has always stood out about the series are the graphics, and with the ridiculous amount to graphical horsepower in the PS4 we might see consoles at least on par with the PC release this time around.

“It’s a real pleasure to cooperate with Sony. Combining CD Projekt RED’s unique artistic vision and tech with the capabilities of PlayStation 4 will make The Witcher 3 a truly next-gen RPG. With Sony's new hardware and our new engine, there are no limits to what we can create in the process of realizing our vision for Geralt's dark fantasy world,” commented Adam Kici?ski, CEO of CD Projekt SA.

It would be fair to say that this reveal has us at least as excited as anything we were told yesterday in terms of upcoming releases. Let the waiting begin.
