CD Projekt RED might be preparing to include a few fan-made mods that might become official by including them in the next-gen version of The Witcher 3.
Back in March, CD Projekt RED (shortened to CDPR onwards) announced that The Witcher 3 is going to get a new version for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. Kotaku found a statement by Halk Hogan (who, aside from being the creator of The Witcher 3 HD Reworked project, seems to be a fan of Hulk Hogan), which we will quote:
„Hello, my dear friends! It’s been a long time since the last video. I know I announced a new HDRP preview in early March but I was silent the whole time. Sorry for that. But in return, I have some good news, and the reasons why I was quiet and why I don’t have too much to show. I think the most important news is that I got an official message from CDPR about cooperation. While it’s not certain yet, HDRP will likely be included in the official next-generation update. I will inform you what’s next. As always, I would like to thank you for all your support and kind words,” the modder wrote.
Kotaku followed it up by contacting CDPR, corroborating Hogan’s statement with theirs: „In addition to our development efforts on the upcoming next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC, we are also in talks with creators of various mods for the 2015 release of the game,” the Poles claimed.
The Witcher 3’s next-gen re-release will come in the second half of the year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC… and this time frame is also when Cyberpunk 2077 will get its respective next-gen patch.
