The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update finally has a release date
CD Projekt Red revealed its entire roadmap for the coming years, which included quite a few The Witcher titles, including a recently-confirmed remake of the original 2009 game. It detailed long-term projects and missed out on more recent endeavours, such as the next-gen remake of The Witcher 3. A Tweet from the game's official handle has now confirmed the game will be playable on December 14.
Those who own a copy of The Witcher 3 on PC, Xbox and PlayStation will get a free upgrade. Among other things, it adds quintessential perks such as raytracing and faster load times for the PS5 and Xbox Series S|X. It also has content inspired by the game's massively popular Netflix series. Both of the game's story-driven DLCs are included, too, making it ideal for people who want to replay the game in its entirety. There are a few goodies in store for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch users, too, but at a later date.
Additional details about The Witcher 3 remake will be revealed via a live stream on the company's official Twitch channel next week. Its PC version will get an automatic update on December 13. Consoles owners, on the other hand, might have to download it from the respective storefronts manually. Despite being launched in 2015, The Witcher 3 still looks stunning and continues to stress even current-generation hardware and it'll be interesting to see some of the improvements CD Projekt Red has in store.
