Here’s hoping for Henry Cavill
While there isn’t a new Witcher game on the horizon, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still due to get a new-gen upgrade for the new slate of consoles. It looks like there will also be some Witcher 3 DLC to go with that, too.
Announced during today’s WitcherCon, CD Projekt Red has said they’ve prepared some free DLC inspired by the Netflix Witcher series. What that will be hasn’t been confirmed yet, but more information will be coming soon.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC this year! Here’s a sneak peek of our updated cover art.

We’ve known about the new-gen visual enhancement for the RPG, which first launched in 2015. Good lord, that feels like ages ago. It’s expected to have some improved visuals and faster load times.
As for what CD Projekt Red could be bringing into the game from the Netflix series via Witcher 3 DLC, that’s anyone’s guess. The Witcher was just locked in for a Season 2 premiere this December, but its story is still fairly far behind the video games.
It’d be nice if this ends up being a cool nod to some earlier parts of Geralt’s life, especially with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt feeling like a send-off for the aging monster slayer. Either way, we’ll find out sometime later this year, when the next-gen update arrives for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
