The company made the announcement yesterday, stating that "a next generation edition is currently in development for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt". This new edition will include ray tracing, faster loading times, among other visual and technical improvements. These improvements will be implemented across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content.

The next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available as a standalone purchase on PC, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and as a free update for current owners of the game on PC, Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

Better get used to seeing a lot of the same games.
Its not the next Skyrim, it is far superior to any incarnation of Bugrim and having it on a new gen is a good thing. But just like Skyrim being released on everything, nobody is forcing you to buy it.

I have never and probably will never replicate the fun I have had over the years with Skyrim. The Witcher 3 is mechanically superior, and frankly, a whole host of other categories too. But there's something about Skyrim. I got a similar feeling from Breath of the Wild, and I suppose maybe GTA: San Andreas? There's some ingredient X that isn't present in Witcher 3.

If you can update the game on PS4/XB1 for free on next gen just offer it as free and work on a new Witcher for PS5. Thats why I'm happy for BC to prevent buying games twice

**Cough GTA V** After I had beat it on PS3 I never played it again

When nintendo keep porting super mario bros in every nintendo's console for the past 35 years and you guys are happy to pay for the same game over and over, but when another company decided to give free upgrade for your 5 years old game and you star complaining?

No wonder why greedy companies still exist.

Glad they're giving it as a free upgrade as opposed to making people pay for it again and again and again *coughcoughBethesdacoughcoughNintendocoughcough*

But then I'd also rather they just make new games and not re-release stuff again and again.
hmm I wonder what game they're releasing in November hmmm that's a tough question /s

On a serious note, I think it's a good thing. These type of games take too much time to make and overhauling W3 for new hardware for current and future owners of the game is a great deal.
