We have decided to let our in-house development team handle the remaining work on the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We are currently evaluating the scope of work to be carried out and as such have to postpone the release of Q2 until further notice. 1/2

This week also saw the news that the remastered version of The Witcher 3 wild hunt, developed by Russian studio Saber Interactive, is brought in-house for completion. In February, CD Projekt Red and CD Projekt Group released a statement about Russia’s invasion of Poland’s neighbor, Ukraine, and halted all sales of games to Russia and Belarus. The development change for the remaster of The witcher 3 appears to be one of the results of these moves, and returning indoors adds a bit more work to the development team’s schedule, so this will also be coming next year.
