Cyberpunk 2077 and the Witcher 3 delay the release of their next-gen versions

CD Projekt Red ha delayed long-awaited next-gen updates for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Updating Cyberpunk 2077 now targets a launch date within the first quarter of 2022 (January-March), while The Witcher 3 will follow suit by delaying the second quarter (April-June).

Announced in a investor update, CD Projekt wrote: “The Board of Directors of the Company hereby announces that, Based on the recommendations provided by the people overseeing the development, you have decided to allocate additional time to both projects.. The company currently intends to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 in Q1 2022, and the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in Q2 2022. “.

Subsequently, CD Projekt Red has also announced it and Twitter. And while they haven’t offered a specific reasoning for the delay, they say that “We want to do well.”.

Both games these next generation updates were planned for the second half of 2021. So far, we know that the new version of The Witcher will arrive with additional (and free) content inspired by the Netflix live action series.

In addition, it will have graphical improvements and there is talk about the possibility of using popular mods from the game to improve textures. In any case, both updates will be free for owners of the original games. And both should improve graphics fidelity and performance.

On the other hand, these delays come after statements that occurred in September, and in which CD Projekt declined to offer specific release dates for any of the updates. They even said that it was not ruled out that they would be delayed to the following year. This is undoubtedly a precaution in response to Cyberpunk’s disastrous launch, which led to promise to be more careful with your marketing prior to launching any game in the future.
