the witcher 3 next gen

Polish developer CD Projekt Red has finally revealed the release date for its next-gen update to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt! The game's free Xbox Series X|S upgrade launches December 14th, more than seven years after the game first arrived on Xbox One.

The Witcher 3 Next-Gen has been announced for over two years at this point, having seen multiple delays since 2020, with the final pushback granting the update a Q4 2022 release window. Well, it's looking like CDPR will just about hit that date!

In a press release, CDPR confirmed that the new version of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt for Xbox Series X|S will feature "dozens of visual, performance, and technical enhancements" including ray tracing, faster loading times and "a variety of mods integrated into the experience". Even the Xbox One version will be getting improvements as well on December 14th, although specifics on this have yet to be revealed.

We've not seen the Xbox Series X|S version running just yet, but that's about to change as well. The dev will be hosting multiple livestreams next week, showcasing the new versions in action ahead of launch.
