The Witcher 3: versions for PS5 and Xbox Series delayed!

Gaming News The Witcher 3: versions for PS5 and Xbox Series delayed!

In September 2020, CD Projekt Red announces that the excellent The Witcher 3 will be entitled to a next-gen version. Today, two years after this information dropped, we learned that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game | S fell behind again.

The Witcher 3 on PS5 and Xbox Series not before the end of the year?

In any case, the development of the next-gen versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has suffered some inconveniences since their launch. Normally expected for 2021, then for the second quarter of 2022, the versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S are finally being postponed again. The Polish studio just took the floor to announce that the upgrade of the hit RPG has been delayed again. Unfortunately, no new release date has been announced. All we know is that, as said before, the title will not land on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series until June 30th, 2022.

In a tweet published just a few minutes ago (and available below), CD Projekt Red claims that this umpteenth delay was due to a team change.

We have decided to turn the remaining work on the new gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt over to our in-house development team. We are currently assessing the scope of work to be carried out and therefore have to postpone the release expected for the second quarter until further notice. CD project red

Formerly in the hands of Saber Interactive (World War Z, Crysis Remastered), development of the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 is now being developed in-house by CD Projekt Red. The reason for this change is currently unknown.

What does the upgrade bring?

As you probably already know, this upgrade is free for those who already own the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X|S and allows players to (re)discover the adventures of our favorite witcher in a new light. On next-gen, the game benefits from new visual effects, but also from ray tracing and reduced loading times. Finally, note that this new edition will include all the DLCs released so far.
