Witcher 3 PS5 And Xbox Series X/S Upgrades Now Have A Release Window

The new-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be released this year, says CDPR.

You’d be forgiven for taking this information with a pinch of salt. Even if it is direct from CD Projekt Red. After all, this port of The Witcher 3 was supposed to release in 2021 and it has already suffered delays.

However, according to CDPR, The Witcher 3 will now arrive for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S Q4 of this year. The news was announced in celebration of the game’s 7th anniversary of its original May 19th, 2015 release.

We’re delighted to share that the Next Gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is planned to release in Q4 2022,” announced CDPR. “See you on the Path, witchers!

No more delays, please!
