The next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is “planned” to release in Q4 2022, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) announced Thursday. Previously, CDPR was targeting a Q2 2022 launch for the free update, but it pushed the release in April without providing a new date. Alongside that April announcement, CDPR said it would be bringing development of the update in-house, meaning it would be taking the reins from Saber Interactive.
CDPR originally targeted a late 2021 release for both The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077’s next-gen updates but later pushed those estimates to 2022. Cyberpunk 2077’s next-gen update landed in February and brought some major improvements, including ray tracing support and faster loading times.
