To celebrate the seventh anniversary of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt Red have taken to Twitter to announce the rough release date of its remaster. The release date is very soon, and very exciting, and is a sign that CD Projekt Red may be attempting to return themselves to the glory days after the disaster that was Cyberpunk 2077.

In the end, whether or not you are still burnt by their 2020 blunders, you have to admit to the quality and excellence of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This fantastic video game stands as one of the best of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One generation. In fact, it still stands up against some of the best of the current video game generation as well.

It is incredibly exciting to think that we may be able to embark on Geralt's journey once again. What this remaster will entail is still unknown, though. Whether or not we are seeing a full-remake or a standard remaster and up-res is uncertain, though we expect the latter over the former. Either way, it's time to get hyped!

When is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Remastered Release Date?

CD Projekt Red have confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Remastered will be released in Q4 of 2022. That means we will see it later this year, which is a big deal for all fans of the franchise. The big shame of it all, though, is that there is still no work regarding whether we will get remasters of the other games as well.

We're delighted to share that the Next Gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is planned to release in Q4 2022.

The cool thing about the original Witcher trilogy is that it acted in much the same way as the original Mass Effect trilogy, which got remastered only last year. What I mean, of course, is that you could import your Witcher save files into each of the games so that your progress continues throughout each experience.

This feature was relatively missing from the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the original game, seeing as The Witcher 2 and The Witcher were not actually available on those consoles. We hope that, if we don't get remasters of those original games, we will at least get a way to simulate the choices you have taken previously (well, at least a way that is better than in the original version).

So there you have it, a rough release date has been revealed for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Remastered, and we can expect to see it later this year. This is incredibly exciting, and we do hope to have it in our hands before we take a long and well-deserved break come Christmas time.
