Granted, this is no Ubisoft, throwing around seemingly random specifications that have little to do with logic. The minimum processor and graphics card requirements seem ordinary, if you think about the amount of sandbox goodness that’s waiting to be enjoyed. What seems a tad strange to me, however, is that the minimal amount of required RAM is 6 gigs. With a fair amount of gamers still using only 4 GB, I’m wondering if this will be an issue. I remain optimistic, however, that I won’t be locked out of The Witcher 3 while stuck at college with my laptop. This is CD Project RED we’re talking about, after all.
