The official announcement on the website said, “We’re working on the next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt! Developed to take advantage of the most powerful gaming hardware, the next-gen edition of the game will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content.”

The Witcher 3 was CDPR’s most successful game of all time. It was also widely regarded as one of the best games ever made. Since its launch in 2015, it has received many ‘Game of The Year’ awards. Eurogamer gave it their highest rating and wrote “A majestic, earthy open-world adventure with great integrity and personality, this is the best role-playing game in years.” The game’s popularity even earned itself its own Netflix series, where Henry Cavill played the role of Geralt.
