CD Projekt has some great news for all fans of 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt who are already planning to purchase a next-gen console, as the acclaimed game is officially coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
That's right, the Warsaw-based game developer is officially working on a next-gen port of its opus magnum — and what's even better, if you've already bought a copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC, you will get the upgraded PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or PC version at no additional cost.
According to CD Projekt, the new edition of the threequel will take full advantage of next-gen capabilities, featuring a plethora of major visual and technical improvements such as ray tracing and faster loading times.
The new version of the critically acclaimed role-playing game will make its debut at some point next year.
It's worth remembering that the newly announced next-gen port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — which has sold over 28 million copies since its successful launch — is not the only game CD Projekt Red is working on, as the beloved studio is also developing the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 and a mysterious new RPG.
