The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will get updated in order to support the new Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.
This was confirmed by a rep for developer CD Projekt Red at E3 this week.
“I can confirm that we are working both on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro patches for The Witcher 3. No extra details at this moment. More info is coming.” CD Projekt Red told Eurogamer.
Last year in September, CD Projekt Red said that it wouldn’t release a PS4 Pro patch for The Witcher 3. The Polish studio wanted to focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent. They’ve said that patching the game for PS4 Pro would be “too much of a time and resource-consuming process.” I guess that the developer changed its mind.
I’m not surprised that CD Projekt Red would want to continue to support The Witcher 3. Last month during the earnings report, the studio revealed that the game had better selling in Q1 2017 than it did the same period before, demonstrating the game’s continued popularity.
The Xbox One X will launch in November, and it will be priced at $500. Do you think that the price is too high?
