The Witcher 3's next-gen update is planning a Q4 release in 2022

"Let''s make this 7th anniversary even better," says the author. "We''re very pleased to announce that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a sequel to The Witcher 3, is scheduled to begin in Q4 2022. See you on the Path, witchers!"

The Witcher 3''s next-gen upgrade was launched all the way back in September 2020 and has been postponed several times since. In April, the Witcher Twitter account stated that their "in-house development team [would] conduct the remaining work on the next-gen version," which was therefore postponed "until further notice."

The Witcher 3''s next-gen update is designed to benefit from the processing powers of the most recent consoles, the PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series whichever it is. That next-gen update will also be released as a free upgrade for PC players, of course.

CD Projekt Red have more going on than just updating their previous games. In March, they announced that work on a new The Witcher game, which will be powered by Unreal Engine 5.
