Witcher fans feel like they have been waiting forever for CD Projekt Red to finally release next-gen versions of their latest game, ever since this was announced back in 2020.

And, like the wait wasn’t long enough already, developers recently announced another delay, which will surely test the patience of even the most resilient gamer.

CD Projekt Red made it known that an upgraded and enhanced version of its hugely popular fantasy RPG doesn’t even have a new release window, leaving many concerned.

Witcher 3 next-gen versions are coming in Q4

Many fans were eagerly waiting to relive all the adventures that Geralt of Rivia engaged in while playing The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.

Seeing cities such as Beauclair, Oxenfurt, or Novigrad in the new resolution, with all the new graphics tweaks, is surely a treat for all fans.

However, all the anticipation that lead us to this moment simply dissipated, as developers dropped the ball on this major project.

We have decided to have our in-house development team conduct the remaining work on the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

By reading this statement, one would understand that CD Projekt Red entrusted the process to someone else while working on the next Witcher game, and it all went downhill from there.

The company responsible for the Witcher game franchise is now taking matters into its own hands and trying to deliver as soon as it can.

CD Projekt Red also stated that it is currently evaluating the scope of work to be done and thus have to postpone Q2 release until further notice.

And, as the gamers that we are, we all understand what until further notice actually means. We’re probably going to see the next-gen versions towards Q4, or maybe in 2023.

People were actually expecting companies like Activision Blizzard to postpone games after huge blunders, not CD Projekt Red.

But, after the Cyberpunk 2077 disaster, pretty much everything is possible. There’s not much to do except wait for the games to become available.
