The engine was designed specifically for "RPGs set in vast, open worlds with improved tools for spanning truly non-linear stories that are based on real player choices and consequences." REDengine 3 will power Cyberpunk 2077 as well as an unannounced title currently in the works at CD Projekt. Could it be a third entry in The Witcher franchise?
Studio boss Adam Badowski had the following to say:
If we look at RPGs nowadays we find two approaches, one which emphasizes the story but limits the game world, and one that builds a vast, open world but hampers and simplifies the story. With the REDengine 3 we combine the positive aspects of both approaches for the first time, creating an open environment with a complex, multi-thread story. Together with believable characters, a captivating tale and a world where players can roam freely without loading times, we will be able to move gaming to a new level with a realistic feel and full player immersion.
Sounds awfully ambitious to me. Be sure to stay tuned to Game Revolution for future updates on what's in store for gamers courtesy of CD Projekt.
