Despite being seven years old at this point, expect those numbers to still pick up for The Witcher 3, as the next-gen versions are still in the works. Recently, CD Projekt RED has announced that they will be delaying these next-gen versions “until further notice,” which means that they are nowhere near ready. In another announcement on Twitter, in which they laid out their production plans, the publisher listed the development work for these next-gen versions to be part of the plans for 2022, which means we may see them release in 2023.
As for the next Witcher title, CD Projekt RED confirmed that they will be using Unreal Engine 5 for the upcoming title, and you can read more about it here.
