Is The Witcher 3 hanging after the opening cutscene for you?

Here’s some tips to get you going again

Having trouble with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? You’re not the only one.

Some Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players over on GameFAQsReddit and Twitter are reporting that the game hangs after the opening cutscene.

Not sure what to do next? Some have had success uninstalling the game, reinstalling and playing through the opening cutscene offline, and then downloading the day-one patch. Others report a hard reboot (unplugging your console from the power socket) does the trick, too. 

We’ve reached out to CD Projekt Red for comment and will let you know more when we hear back. In the meantime, let us know in the comments if you’ve had problems, and/or if you can recommend a fix!

Did you catch our The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt review? We said that it was a “huge step up from its predecessor, mostly because it manages to tell a more compelling and personal tale. At the same time, that intimate feel is juxtaposed against a gigantic, sprawling open-world adventure that may hit some snags along the way but still comes out on top.”
