Witcher 3, GTA V, Skyrim & Far Cry 4 Map Size Comparison

CDProjektRED has already proven it has what it takes to make an epic RPG. The original Witcher game was a little clunky, but it set the wheels in motion for the RPG masterpiece that was The Witcher 2, one of the best games of the last generation and when it launched, it was a titan in terms of graphical performance too. Now we have The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt on the horizon and we’re preparing for the ultimate Witcher experience as well as what is expected to be one of the biggest and best RPGs of all time. The only question is, exactly how big is the world of The Witcher 3?
To put it simply, the game is freaking massive. For those that need numbers, 1 “massive” is around 136km2, but that only accounts for the Novegrad, No Man’s Land and Skellige Islands, there are 4-6 more regions beyond that of unknown size, but we do know that they’re also on a grand scale.
Even with this little bit of information, we can work out that The Witcher 3 is at least 3.7 times the size of the 36 km2 GTA San Andreas map, it’s 1.5 times bigger than the 81 km2 of GTA V, 3.3 times the 41 km2 of Read Dead Redemption, 3 times bigger than Far Cry 4’s 46 km2, three and a half times bigger than Skyrims modest 39 km2!
Put simply, we only have conservative estimates of the map size, but with some areas still to be detailed, the estimate is only going to go one way; up!
