In April, the developer shared that The Witcher 3's new generation was no longer being outsourced to Saber Interactive, who previously worked on the Nintendo Switch release. Instead, CD Projekt Red "decided to have [their] in-house development team conduct the remaining work". They postponed the PS5 and XS versions to an indefinite date until today.
When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's PS5 and XS versions were initially announced, it highlighted that the enhanced re-release would support ray tracing and better loading times. This improved version will also see a release on PC and that specific version will receive HDR support too.
CD Projekt Red is also still working on a brand-new entry in The Witcher series that is being developed on Unreal Engine 5.
