Things aren’t going so well with CD Projekt RED at the moment. First the thing with Cyberpunk 2077, then the delays in the next-gen versions … at least, there is now an announcement about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Actually, the next-gen upgrade to the flagship role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt should have been here long ago. After all, it’s almost seven years to the point since Geralt started his third foray into the game world.
Most recently, the first half of 2022 was planned, but that also went haywire – in this case due to the Ukraine war. Saber Interactive from St. Petersburg was actually supposed to take over the upgrade, but due to the Russian invasion, all work with the Russian studio was canceled and the game was brought back to Poland, as it were.
After the next-gen version was initially postponed indefinitely in April, there is now a small ray of hope again. CD Projekt RED has now confirmed via Twitter that the fourth quarter is being targeted as the new period for the release. This year, of course.
So you can not only look forward to the next-gen upgrade, but also the matching Complete Edition, which should contain the main game, both expansions, as well as all DLCs and patches. Well, hopefully it works this time.
