The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting new DLC soon. Before it was delayed, the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 was scheduled to release this year via the PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. When the next-gen version of the game was delayed, it was simply delayed to “2022,” which is a large release window. Recently, this release window was narrowed down. According to CD Projekt Red, the next-gen version of the award-winning and best-selling RPG is releasing sometime in Q2 2022, which is to say, sometime between the first day of April and the final day of June. In other words, Witcher fans are getting the next-gen version of the game and the new DLC it comes with some time in the next seven months.
For those out of the loop, this DLC isn’t going to be on the level of the game’s two expansions: Hearts of Stone and Blood of Wine, which, when combined, added nearly 100 hours of new content. Rather, the new DLC — which is said to be described by the Netflix show — will almost certainly be considerably less substantial. The tease suggests the DLC will be no more than cosmetic content, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility players may be treated to some proper new content like new quests or weapons.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC this year! Here’s a sneak peek of our updated cover art.

For now, all we can do is speculate what the DLC will be. And the same goes for the actual next-gen versions as well. We know the game on PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X will boast “a range of visual and technical improvements” — and we know some of these improvements will include ray tracing and faster loading times — but that’s all we know.
As always, feel free to leave a comment or two letting us know what you think or, alternatively, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ to talk all things gaming. Will you be jumping back into The Witcher 3 — for the first time or again — when it comes to the PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X?
