CD Projekt Red has announced that the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are slated to release at the end of this year.
Let’s make this seventh anniversary even better, shall we?

In a Twitter post to celebrate The Witcher 3’s seventh anniversary, the official Witcher account said, “We are pleased to share that the next version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is planned for a release in the fourth quarter of 2022.”
Last month, CDPR had to reassure fans that the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 “isn’t in development hell” after the developer delayed the updated version of the popular RPG indefinitely.
The Enhanced Edition, which will be released as a free update to owners of existing PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, will visually and technically enhance the RPG for those playing on PS5, Xbox Series X, and the most profitable PCs. It was originally scheduled to launch in late 2021, but it faced delays in the launch flight.
Q4 starts on October 1 and ends on December 31, so CD Projekt plans to release it in the final months of the year. This would normally be a busy time for video games, but with Starfield pushed back to 2023, this is a less powerful RPG that you should be content with.
