The developers confirm the game will need a little more room on consoles.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developers, CD Projekt RED, have confirmed to GameSpot that the game will take up approximately 50GB of hard drive space on the Xbox One and PS4 consoles.

A 'leaked' PSN listing prompted the studio to reveal that 50GB is around the figure players will be looking at to make sure the game will fit on their hard drives.

Looking at The Witcher 3's PC specs, which were announced last month, they state a 40GB hard drive install will be required. This is along with the rather beefy rig you will need to run the game.

Other console games that boast such large install sizes include NBA 2K14 and Assassin's Creed Unity, both coming in at about 40GB each.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due for release on 19th May for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
