CD Projekt Red has delayed the new-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt indefinitely.
The developer announced the free update for the critically acclaimed game back in September 2020 and was set to launch in late 2021 before it was delayed to 2022. The game has been further delayed now, this time indefinitely.
In a tweet shared on Twitter, CD Projekt Red revealed the studio is moving development of the new-gen release in-house, despite originally being developed by Saber Interactive, the studio that previously worked on the Nintendo Switch port for The Witcher 3.
The tweet reads: “We have decided to have our in-house development team conduct the remaining work on the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We are currently evaluating the scope of work to be done and thus have to postpone Q2 release until further notice. We’ll update you as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.”
According to CD Projekt Red, the new-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will include ray tracing and faster loading times, along with DLC inspired by Netflix’s adaptation of the franchise. The game will be available as a standalone title or as a free upgrade for anyone that has a copy of the game on PS4 or Xbox One.
