Who know when CD Projekt RED’s struggles with Cyberpunk 2077 will end (in spite of what they say), but at least they’re always going to have the incredible The Witcher 3 to fall back on. Later this year, the Polish developer will be releasing native PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the beloved open world RPG, and on top of all the visual and performance improvements you’d expect, the release is also going to bring some new things to the table.
Recently, for instance, CD Projekt RED confirmed that they are going to release free DLC for The Witcher 3 inspired by the Netflix Witcher adaptation. They promised “more info” in the near future, but left many questions unanswered even so. One of those questions has been answered already, however, with the developer confirming that the DLC in question won’t just be for the game’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions, and will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch owners. CDPR also reiterates that free next-gen upgrades will be supported for those who already own the game on PlayStation or Xbox.
There’s no word yet on when The Witcher 3 will launch for the new consoles, but it’s supposed to be some time later this year.
Before you ask:
– the next-gen update will be free for everyone who already owns the game
– the DLCs are not exclusive to the next-gen version, they will be available for every version of the game (including PS4, Xbox One and Switch)
