“We have decided to have our in-house development team conduct the remaining work on the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” CD Projekt said.
“We are currently evaluating the scope of work to be done and thus have to postpone Q2 release until further notice.
“We’ll update you as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.”
When it’s released, the game will be available as a standalone purchase for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5, and as a free update for players who already own it on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The title will also include DLC inspired by the Netflix series.
CD Project revealed in March that its next Witcher game will kick off “a new saga” for the franchise.
CD Projekt said in 2020 that its next game after Cyberpunk 2077 would be a single-player title set in The Witcher universe. A release timeframe for the new Witcher game hasn’t been announced.
The next series entry is being directed by Jason Slama, who was a senior UI programmer on Witcher 3 and game director on card-game Gwent. He also previously served as CD Projekt Red’s director of live operations.
