The Witcher 3's Free Xbox Series X|S Upgrade Has Been Delayed

Sad news if you're a Witcher 3 fan today, as CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the free Xbox Series X and Series S upgrade for the game will no longer be releasing in Q2 2022 as planned, having been delayed indefinitely.

The reason for this is because the team wants to finish off the rest of the next-gen version in-house, which means Saber Interactive is seemingly no longer working on the project, and they're "evaluating the scope of work to be done":

"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."

The Witcher 3's Xbox Series X and S version has been delayed multiple times at this point - it was first announced all the way back in September 2020 - and it sounds like it could still be quite a while until it graces our new consoles.

When it does eventually arrive, The Witcher 3 will boast the likes of ray tracing and faster loading times for next-gen consoles, along with free DLC based on the Netflix series of The Witcher. Let's just hope we don't have to wait too long...
