The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s Next-Gen Update Arrives This December

CD Projekt Red has announced that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released on December 14.

Announced in a post on The Witcher’s official Twitter account (below), CD Projekt Red has stuck to its promise of a fourth quarter release by confirming the December date.

“The next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming on December 14th, free for everyone who already owns the game,” it said.

The next-gen version of The Witcher 3, which is a “visually and technically enhanced” upgrade that includes bonus DLC based on The Witcher Netflix series, was originally expected to be released last year before being delayed twice.

Third party studio Saber Interactive was originally developing the new version but CD Projekt Red took over itself in April 2022, though persisted that the game was “not in development hell”.

The Q4 date was set back in May but many were still worried given the two previous delays, not to mention the impending end of the year, but CD Projekt Red will seemingly meet its target.

In our 9/10 review of the original release, IGN said: “Massive in size, and meticulously detailed, The Witcher 3 ends Geralt’s story on a high note,” and it also won our Game of the Year.
