It was only a matter of time as one of the most popular video games of this generation is coming to an end, but now CD Projekt RED has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be also releasing on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Like so many other games that will be adapted to the new generation of consoles, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will also allow us to get a free copy if we already have the game on current systems. In this way, if we have a copy for PS4 we can update it to play on PS5 and the same will happen with Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
The developers at CD Projekt RED have assured that the game will take advantage of the new systems and in addition to various visual and performance improvements, it will also support ray tracing to improve the global lighting and will have greatly reduced loading times. All of these improvements will make their way to the main game, with additional content and the two expansions.
The improved version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can be purchased separately on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X, as it will also reach the Windows platform, where it will be updated for free for those who already have the game.
All we need to do is just wait for it to be confirmed when it will be possible to play this improved version of one of the best role-playing games and action titles that we have had in years. In the same way, we do not know exactly when the version of Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for the new consoles, which will also make use of improvements similar to those mentioned for this game.
The Witcher 3 is coming to the next generation!
