CD Projekt Red has released a brand new hotfix for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that fixes issues following the release of the next-gen update.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting a new hotfix for PC that addresses issues that arose in the recently released next-gen update 4.0. All PC owners of the game will have access to the new 4.0 update. The patch brings several new features, additional content and performance settings.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition debuted on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on December 14. The PC version has been updated to keep it up to par with next-gen versions, but it has brought significant stability and performance issues.
CD Projekt Red has launched a new hotfix for The Witcher 3 on Steam and GOG to address PC performance issues. The version number will not change after applying the update. However, players should still receive the hotfix as an update. CD Projekt Red says the hotfix will improve the overall stability and performance of the game. At the same time, it will fix overlaps in Steam and GOG versions. The update is already available for the Origin version, and CD Projekt Red’s development teams are working on further improvements.
The hotfix for the game is roughly 2.2 GB on Steam and 1.9 GB on GOG. So for a hotfix, it’s pretty significant. No further details about the hotfix have been revealed, but PC players will have a better experience with The Witcher 3. The timeframe for further updates was also not announced.
CD Projekt Red is working hard to resolve the problems with the PC version, but there are still issues. For example, the Steam Deck version still does not work.
CD Projekt Red has not yet released a new update for the Nintendo Switch version. The Switch version will not receive new performance settings or visual updates. However, players on Nintendo’s hybrid console will have access to newly added content inspired by Netflix’s The Witcher series.
A hotfix that should improve overall stability and performance of the game has just gone live on PC. Please make sure to update your version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and let us know how you're finding it.
