The Witcher 3 next-gen was released over a month ago, and outside of two hotfixes released on PC, CD Projekt Red hasn't talked a lot about the first update for the new version of their massively successful open-world role-playing game. Thankfully, it seems like the developer has been hard at work these past few weeks.

Speaking on Twitter, CDPR's Global Community Director Marcin Momot confirmed the first update is in the final stages of development, and it won't take long for its release. More information on it will be coming soon.

While the two hotfixes introduced some improvements, there are still many issues in The Witcher 3 next-gen that still need to be addressed. Console players have no option other than wait for official updates, but PC players can already have a much better experience thanks to mods that improve visuals and optimize ray tracing.

The Witcher 3 is now available on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch worldwide. We will keep you updated on when the first next-gen update launches as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.

You are Geralt of Rivia, mercenary monster slayer. Before you stands a war-torn, monster-infested continent you can explore at will. Your current contract? Tracking down Ciri — the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.

Updated to the latest version, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes with new features and items, including a built-in Photo Mode, swords, armor, and alternate outfits inspired by The Witcher Netflix series — and more!

Behold the dark fantasy world of the Continent like never before! This edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been enhanced with numerous visual and technical improvements, including vastly improved level of detail, a range of community created and newly developed mods for the game, real-time ray tracing, and more — all implemented with the power of modern PCs in mind.
