The Witcher 3's next-generation version is launching this year
After delaying the project indefinitely, CD Projekt Red has officially confirmed that The Wither 3: The Wild Hunt's next-generation upgraded version is due to launch in Q4 2022.
This new version of The Witcher 3 will be called The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt - Complete Edition, and include all content that's available for the original game (all DLC and expansion packs), alongside new content that has been inspired by The Witcher's Netflix series.
Last month, the development of The Witcher 3's next-generation upgraded version was moved from Saber Interactive and into CD Projekt Red. This forced CD Projekt Red to delay the release of the game until they understood "the scope of work to be done". At this time, CD Projekt Red has not revealed why they took control of the project from Saber Interactive.
The Witcher 3's next-generation version will be available on PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. The game will be available for free to existing owners of the game, with PC gamers receiving a next-generation patch, while Xbox and PlayStation users will receive updates when playing their copies of The Witcher 3 on their current-generation systems.
