An enhanced version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X won’t have a release window in the first half of 2022, CD Projekt Red said Wednesday. The company has made an announcement on Twitter, saying it is bringing the project into the house. CD Projekt does not set a new release window.
“We decided to let our in-house development team do the rest of the work on the next-gen version of the game. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” said CD Projekt. “We are currently assessing the scope of work to be done and are therefore postponing the Q2 release until further notice. We will update you as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.”
Saber Interactive, the developers behind this amazing version of Wild Hunting for Nintendo Switch, previously worked on the project.
Released in 2015, Wild Hunting is the most critically acclaimed game in franchise history. Its visual fidelity and mechanical complexity have made it one of the best modern PC games, including here at Polygon.
Goodwill derives from the commercial and significant success of Wild Hunting helped drive consumer interest in Cyberpunk 2077, an ambitious game based on a universe created by R. Talsorian Games. Unfortunately, that product was delayed many times before being released in a state of numerous bugs. The aftermath of that fake release led to a personal apology by the company’s CEO. Also, it took a long time of practice to get the game to the finish line.
News about Wild HuntingThe delay comes a month after the company announced that the next title in the Witcher franchise is in development and will use Unreal Engine 5 as part of a “multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games.” .
