Bad news for next-gen console owners hoping to play Cyberpunk 2077 and/or The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt in the coming weeks: CD Projekt Red has announced that the anticipated update for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S has been delayed. For Cyberpunk 2077, the update will not launch until Q1 2022 with The Witcher 3 update not arriving until Q2 2022.
We have an important update regarding next-generation updates for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for consoles and PC. Based on recommendations supplied by teams supervising the development of both games, we decided to postpone their releases until 2022.
Our current target for Cyberpunk 2077 is the first quarter of 2022, and the second quarter of 2022 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Apologies for the extended wait, but we want to make it right.
This has been a rough year for CDPR with the rocky launch of Cyberpunk and the long months dealing with the issues resulting from that. Add in a hefty dose of COVID-related delays and it was the perfect storm to set the next-gen update back several months.
