Previously, CD Projekt Red has confirmed that further updates are due, as the developer needs to address other performance issues within the next-gen The Witcher 3.
CD Projekt RED is taking on some ambitious projects to make the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 an even better experience. They’re seeking ways to increase CPU core utilization and DirectX 12 performance.
