CD Projekt Red is working on a version of The Witcher 3 with polished graphics and shorter loading times. The studio brings The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with an improved display to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and the PC. The game will receive support for ray tracing.
CD Projekt Red is preparing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for the new consoles and in addition to the base game, the two expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine are also coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. In addition to ray tracing support, the studio promises that the game gets more visual and technical improvements including shorter loading times on consoles and PC.
The game will be available as a standalone game, but those who already have The Witcher 3 on PC, Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can receive it as a free update. CD Projekt Red has not yet announced more details. For example, it is unknown on which date the game will be released.
CD Projekt Red announced its results for the first half of 2020 last week. The Witcher 3 was still the main source of revenue. This is partly because the game appeared for the Nintendo Switch last year. The Polish game company achieved a turnover of 81.8 million euros, almost 70 percent more than in the previous year.
CD Projekt Red announced The Witcher 3 in 2013. An estimated 28 million copies of the game have been sold.
