Developed by CD Projekt Red, The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt first met with players in 2015. The production, which the players experienced from the first day, had its name written in golden letters on the list of loved ones. The developer team of the game excited the fans with the good news of a new version in 2020, with the 5th year of the game. The company announced that the new version of the game will be released for the PC platform together with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S consoles.
In the statement made in September 2020, it was stated that the game will be equipped with Ray Traycing technology, as well as it will open faster with faster loading speeds. In addition, it was stated in the statement that players with one of the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will receive the remastered version with a free upgrade at no additional cost. According to the plans, the release date would be the second quarter of 2022.
However, CD Projekt Red seems to be unable to spare time for The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt project while dealing with the delay problems and post-release frustration with Cyberpunk 2077, while dealing with update works. Because not much information was shared about the project. In addition, the remastered version of the game was being developed by Saber Interactive. Along with all this, the news of the postponement was announced on the official account of the game.
