Witcher 3's next-gen update is set to arrive in the second half of 2021

By Heidi Nicholas,
CD Projekt Group's recent strategy update gave us a 2021 roadmap for both Cyberpunk 2077 and the world of The Witcher, confirming that The Witcher 3's next-gen update will arrive later this year.

2021 roadmap

CD Projekt Group's Michal Nowakowski appeared during the strategy update to detail this year's roadmap for the world of The Witcher, including work on the mobile game The Witcher: Monster Slayer, development on Gwent, and the next-gen update for The Witcher 3, which arrives in the second half of 2021.

Nowakowski also took us through the roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077, saying that CDPR's "top priority" is "improving the game with updates and patches." Patch 1.2, which arrived for Cyberpunk 2077 just a few days ago, addressed a huge amount of bugs and issues in the game. Nowakowski says that CDPR will turn its attention to Cyberpunk 2077's next-gen update "once the game is at the standard we are aiming for." Cyberpunk 2077 is also still due to get free DLC this year.

CDPR's Adam Kicinski also appeared with an update on the multiplayer aspect of Cyberpunk 2077. "Previously we hinted that our next triple-A would be a multiplayer Cyberpunk game, but we have decided to reconsider this plan," he says. "Given our new, more systematic and agile approach, instead of primarily focusing on one big online experience or game, we are focusing on bringing online into all of our franchises one day."

We don't yet have a specific release date for either The Witcher 3 or Cyberpunk 2077's next-gen updates, or for when Cyberpunk's free DLC will arrive, but we'll update you when we hear more.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
