The Witcher 3 Next-Gen has been released for over two years at this point, having seen many delays since 2020, with the final pushback giving the update a Q4 2022 release window.
The next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming on December 14th, free for everyone who already owns the game.
