The Witcher 3 is still on track for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later this year

Despite all of its promises, CD Projekt RED couldn't narrow down the release date of the next-gen version of The Witcher 3.


Right before CD Projekt RED held its most recent strategy update, fans believed that it had plans to showcase the next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Unfortunately, CDPR had other, if not better, plans.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is widely considered one of the best games of all time.

Technically, CDPR did acknowledge the new-gen port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

According to CDPR, the next-gen versions of The Witcher 3 aren't coming today or anytime soon, but the studio did reaffirm that they're still planned to come out this year.

CDPR unveiled the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X version of The Witcher 3 two years ago. Since then, the Polish studio has pushed back its release date "indefinitely" after it had moved the development in-house. Although CDPR did not give a release window for The Witcher 3 on the latest flagship consoles, we can only assume that it's targeting a Q4 launch.

If nothing else, the latest release for The Witcher 3 on the PS5 and XSX would be next year. Otherwise, there'd be no use.

If we're being honest, we're surprised that The Witcher 3 isn't getting a remake for the PS5 and/or Xbox Series S/X.

CD Projekt RE headlined the day with its massive release slate for the next decade. In addition to the next-gen port of The Witcher 3, CDPR is also working on a new The Witcher trilogy, a new Cyberpunk game, as well as two Witcher spin-offs.

Although all of these are in the far future, Witcher fans can look forward to watching Blood Origin and The Witcher Season 3 on Netflix in December and in the summer, respectively.
