The PS5/Xbox Series X Versions Of The Witcher 3 Have Been Delayed Indefinitely

CD Pro­jekt Red has delayed the new-gen­er­a­tion ver­sions of The Witch­er 3: Wild Hunt. A new release date was not giv­en, but don’t plan on it show­ing up dur­ing the sec­ond quar­ter (from now until the end of June), as it was pre­vi­ous­ly announced.

The delay is due to CD Pro­jekt Red’s inter­nal devel­op­ment tak­ing over. “We are cur­rent­ly eval­u­at­ing the scope of work to be done and thus have to post­pone Q2 release until fur­ther notice,” the stu­dio recent­ly stat­ed in a tweet. Saber Inter­ac­tive was work­ing on the port before CD Pro­jekt Red decid­ed to bring it in-house.

A rea­son for the shift to CDPR’s inter­nal team was not shared, but the team is cur­rent­ly also work­ing on improv­ing Cyber­punk 2077 and devel­op­ing post-release con­tent for that title. Kotaku did point out that it was a Rus­sia-based stu­dio that was work­ing on the game, though CD Pro­jekt Red declined to com­ment when asked if the inva­sion of Ukraine played a part in the deci­sion to remove the game from Saber. CD Pro­jekt did sus­pend game sales in Rus­sia at the start of the invasion.

No one knows how long this delay will be, so it’s indef­i­nite for now.

Those who already own The Witch­er 3 will be able to upgrade to the new-gen ver­sion for free. Specifics of this process haven’t been announced. Sim­i­lar­ly, it’s unknown what kind of enhance­ments will be made to new-gen ver­sions, but all of The Witch­er 3’s DLC will be included.
