CD Projekt's third entry in The Witcher series already runs rather well on the Xbox Series X|S, but as you might recall, there's more to come.

The Polish-based company will be releasing a true "next-generation" update for The Witcher 3, which will add ray tracing and include even faster load times. It's doing this with the help of Saber Interactive. Now, in a small update today - the release window of this next-gen upgrade has been narrowed down to the "second half" of this year.

As previously noted, this upgrade will be available as a free update for existing owners of the Xbox One version. So, if you were planning on replaying The Witcher 3, it might be worth holding out until the second half of this year.

Will you be rejoining Geralt on his adventures when this next-gen update rolls out? Leave a comment down below.
