Finally here we are: CD Projekt RED has announced a date Update the next generation of blockbusters The Witcher III Wild Hunt. appointment for December 14th, in exactly one month: In addition to the latest gaming consoles from both Microsoft (Xbox Series X | S) and Sony (PS5, of course) the PC world will also be involved. The patch was announced a long time ago, but it was overdue: initially the developer planned to release it by the second quarter of 2022, then there were major reorganizations that significantly slowed down its production.

The patch is a significant step forward for the graphics of the final chapter of the Geralt of Rivia saga – not that it’s as disappointing as it is, but let’s say that from 2015 to today the sector has progressed quite a bit. CDPR promises dozens of visual, performance, and technical improvements: among the most important Ray tracing support Real-time, reduced loading times on consoles, many built-in mods and much more. There will also be some all-new content inspired by the live-action series on Netflix (which recently lost its lead, Henry Cavill; Liam Hemsworth will replace him).
