After a long wait, The Witcher 3 has finally got a release window for future versions of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Moreover, it will have a DLC inspired by the Netflix series The Witcher.
The developer of CD Projekt RED has confirmed the release period on Twitter, dedicated to the seventh anniversary of The Witcher 3. The tweet confirms the release in the 4th quarter of 2022, which means we should see it during the holidays (November to December).

It is unclear exactly what this update will bring to the experience of The Witcher 3, but the director of the world community CD Projekt RED Martin Momot wrote in a tweet: “As for the content of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next generation, it comes with both Hearts of Stone + Blood and Wine expansion packs, all previously released DLCs and patches + new DLC inspired by The Witcher Netflix series” .
Momat is also confirmed in tweet that while the next-generation version will be sold, those who already own a copy of The Witcher 3 will receive a free upgrade.
CD Projekt RED does not reveal any details of what exactly inspired the DLC witch The Netflix series will include. However, we will not be surprised if for Geralt there is an official skin of Henry Cavill.
Toss a Witcher coin 3 times
The news of the update is unexpected, as only last month the developer announced it The update of the Witcher 3 PS5 and Xbox Series X has been postponed indefinitely. Previously, the update was done by Saber Interactive, but since then it has been brought into the house.
However, it seems that the Polish studio is confident that it will receive the update this year, which is encouraging. The Witcher 3 is one of the most critically acclaimed games of the last decade, and the prospect of playing on more powerful hardware such as the PS5 is certainly fascinating.
