The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Next Gen Update Finally Gets A Release Date

Widely regarded as one of the greatest video games ever made, "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" has had a prolonged impact on the gaming industry since its lauded and commercially successful launch in 2015. Widely regarded as CD Projekt Red's magnum opus, the fantasy title sold over 4 million copies in its first two weeks and was the subject of a huge resurgence in 2019 after the release of Netflix's "The Witcher" TV series. Because of this continued popularity, CD Projekt Red announced in 2020 that "The Witcher 3" would be receiving a next-gen update for the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles, as well as PC. And while breadcrumbs of information has since been released regarding the project, it's finally been revealed when gamers can expect to play it.

On Nov. 14, the official "Witcher" Twitter page published a photo bearing the release date for the next-gen version of "The Witcher 3." Starting Dec. 14, exactly one month from the official reveal, the next-gen update will be available for free to anyone who currently owns "The Witcher 3." The account also posted a link to CD Projekt Red's official Twitch page, where a more detailed breakdown of the next-gen update's gameplay features and upgrades are to be discussed at some point next week. The official "Witcher" Twitter page hasĀ also confirmed that physical copies of the next-gen edition of "The Witcher 3" will be available sometime in the future, so fans of the series have a lot to enjoy while they wait for the next "Witcher" game.
