Wolfenstein Youngblood Won’t Have Ray Tracing at Launch

Wolfenstein Youngblood developers have now confirmed that NVIDIA‘s ray tracing enhancements for the game will not be available on launch day. The confirmation comes directly from Jerk Gustaffson (via Venturebeat), the game’s executive producer.

The game will be widely available starting July 26th. It will be playable on on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as the Nintendo Switch. It will even debut later on Google’s Stadia.
