The next-gen version of The Witcher 3 will be released in Q4 2022 with Netflix show DLC

The Witcher 3 is getting new content based on the Netflix series.

One of the most famous video games of the last decade, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will soon come to the Xbox Series X and PS5 with a new version that takes advantage of the bells and whistles of the consoles. After the release was delayed a number of times, CD Projekt RED has announced that the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 will be released in Q4 2022. In addition, it will receive DLC based on the hit Netflix series.

That was earlier today a tweet from The Witcher’s official Twitter account confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive its Xbox Series X and PS5 release in the fourth quarter of this year. This comes just a month after the launch was postponed until further notice. The fourth quarter is still a few months away, but fans now have a rough estimate of when to expect their beloved fantasy world to return.

Following this announcement, CD Projekt RED Global Community Director Marcin Momot sheds more light on the release, explaining that the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 will include the existing Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions. In addition, the game will receive DLC “inspired by the Netflix series The Witcher”. Momot doesn’t elaborate on that last point, aside from confirming that there will be content related to the hit Netflix series in The Witcher 3. It’s unclear if this is new story content or perhaps cosmetic items that allow you to dress up similar to Henry Cavill in Geralt’s iteration.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will now be released for the Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. If that’s the case, players won’t be short of content to dive into. Count on Shacknews for future updates on new content coming to The Witcher 3.
