With still no first look at how exactly Geralt will appear in The Witcher 3's current-gen upgrade, you'd be forgiven for thinking the repeatedly delayed Complete Edition has been pushed back again. Apparently that is not the case, and CDPR has confirmed it is still expected to be here before the end of 2022.
In a new post on the CDPR site (via VGC), the studio celebrates all of its recent accomplishments as well as reiterating what's to come. In there is the reveal that yes, The Witcher 3 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S is still expected to be here during the final quarter of 2022. “In the fourth quarter of 2022 the Company also plans to release an updated edition of The Witcher 3, taking advantage of the capabilities of next-generation consoles,” closes the post.
That will come as a huge relief to those who have been waiting to play the better-looking version of Wild Hunt since CDPR announced it was going to be a thing. The upgrade was initially slated to be here in 2021, got pushed back into early 2022, and then again to the end of this year. Understandable since it appears to have been pretty much all hands on deck at CDPR recently in an attempt to make Cyberpunk 2077's Phantom Liberty DLC happen.
The Night City expansion was officially announced earlier this week and, against all odds, almost two years after launch Cyberpunk appears to be something of a success. It still being talked about, let alone played and generating hype for DLC, this long after one of the rockiest launches in gaming history is quite the achievement on CDPR's part.
Back to The Witcher, CDPR also included the reveal that the next game in the series, which still doesn't have a name, will be just one part of an all-new saga. As for The Witcher 3's upgrade, although it will be available to buy as a standalone game, it will also be a free update for those who already own the base title on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will also be more than just a visually improved version of the game with elements from The Witcher's Netflix show being added.
