CD Projekt Red keep popping up in the gaming news lately, be it due to the release of their debut Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, or the fact that we're just a few days away from the official announcement of The Witcher 3. But that's not all. The studio have given us the first glimpse of what the next generation of RPGs could look like, releasing the following image:
As the watermark on the screenshot states, this is an image of CD Projekt Red's latest in-house engine in action, the REDengine 3. CD Projekt RED claim the engine will put RPGs on par with "top-shelf shooters" in terms of gameplay presentation:
"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. When working on our previous titles, I didn’t dream that we would achieve something like this."
