CD Projekt RED has got some great news for fans of the critically acclaimed The Witcher series, as they have officially announced that The Witcher II: Wild Hunt is currently in development for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X; bringing with it some graphical enhancements, of course.
The Witcher II: Wild Hunt was initially released in May of 2015, but for an almost 5 years old game it is still looking phenomenal in the graphics department, so it will definitely be interesting to see how much better the game will look on next-gen consoles.
It isn't just visuals that CD Projekt RED promises to work on in the next-gen version of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, as they also mention some technical enhancements, which makes us wonder if the developers will make the game compatible with the PlayStation 5's revolutionary DualSense controlelr for a more immersive experience.
The good news don't end there, though, since CD Projekt RED has also confirmed that both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt will be available as a free upgrade for those players who already own the current-gen version of the critically acclaimed title.
Unfortunately, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still doesn't have an official release date, but it is very likely that work on the game is done and ready to go, and CD Projekt RED is waiting for Sony and Microsoft to announce their consoles' respective launch dates; the game may even be available on day one, for all we know.
